Thanks for raising the question. As I understand it, he's not loading 
his tower, but is planning a 2-el 80M array along one side of his lot. 
If I got it wrong and he is loading the tower, then yes, a set of 
radials from the tower makes perfect sense, with additional radials for 
the future array.
