Maybe not. There has been more research done since I last read N6LF's
writings, etc. The earth underneath must have something to do with it. In
any case, the current has to be the same on all the radials.

This is the first reference. See what you think.

Really? Well established FACT? I’m quite confused then as reading John’s
book it seems quite nebulous the impact of elevated radials. Doesn’t seem
to be a ‘fact’ – more dependent on location and other variables. I’m not
suggesting you’re wrong – just it seems the jury is quite out on this
‘fact’. W8JI measured a -4.3 db difference between 4 elevated and only 60
(not 120) on the ground .... others show differences of -3 – almost -6 db
... I’m not sure itsquite that clear to say “well established fact” ...
