I live way down here in Georgia, 1000 miles further from
Europe with almost the same path as the east coast but a
longer distance. I need people in the NE to use elevated
radials! Please don't convince them to change from the 100%
efficient elevated systems they already use to a poor
conventional ground like I am using.
Is there anything I can do to get you to change back to the
old 100% efficient elevated system you were using?
