[TowerTalk] Effect of ground radials

This is the first time I got zero response on towertalk, so I will try to
rephrase my question.  We all know that having a good ground system on a
vertical reduces ground loss.  What effect, if any, do 1/4 wl buried
ground radials have on the pattern and radiation angle?  I normally model
only the vertical portion of a vertical antenna and use the average ground
setting, unless it happens to be on the beach. Can ground buried radials
be modeled?

What is the proper way to model buried ground radials of a vertical antenna.
