But arent you in the boonies Mike with little common mode noise? I notice a 
few others with lots of acerage do the same but when I was enroached upon on 
both sides I just followed ON4UN's lead. It works and maybe the other way 
does as well but with about a foot of compacted snow, which is also called 
ice, on the ground Im months from finding out. More coming Monday.
