If more radials helped, that's good, but it's not because of any
*shielding* effect.  Radials do radiate - they're part of the antenna
system, after all.

If you have symmetrical radials, the radiation tends to cancel in the
FAR field, but the near field radiation will be quite strong from each
individual radial.

As always, use whatever works.  :-)
