At the risk of setting off a food-fight, I'm interested in opinions on
shortened radials (T or loaded) versus the K2AC/W0UCE folded
counterpoise design. W8JI has an interesting unfinished page
<www.w8ji.com/fcp_folded_counterpoise_system.htm> attacking the FCP.
Tom's a combative fella, but he's also very smart. I am putting up an
inverted L, trying to avoid having to lay down 6000 or even 750 feet of
on-the ground radials, and don't really have room for resonant elevated
radials on 160.
