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 
<> 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.
