I've heard that erecting a vertical "on the beach" (salt water) is an
excellent thing to do. Could someone explain exactly how that's done. How
far away from the water should the antenna be? Does that matter? What about
radials - how should they be configured with respect to the water/beach?

I have property on eastern Long Island and it has water access behind the
house. I'd love to try this!
