Topband: Radial question

I currently use the spray on my patio, lawn and driveway as a ground system. It works so well I took down my elevated radial system which made my XYL very happy. Now I have a much more efficient antenna AND a much happier wife.  I have worked more DX on 160 this season than in all prior years combined!!!!!

Next, I am going to spray it on the house and use it the vertical radiator.  If all goes as planned, I will take down my vertical after due A/B testing.

I am also planning to spray a set of elements on the roof in lieu of a yagi.  Should work well on the high bands but have decreased performance as frequency decreases due to it's low height.  With relays, directions could be switched instantaneously! There are always tradeoffs.

Think of the applications for hams with antenna restrictions!
