Last year I posted results from a series of experiments on ground systems for vertical antennas. That series of reports was converted with some modifications into a series of seven articles in QEX magazine. The ARRL has kindly given me permission to post .pdf files of these seven articles for those who do not have access to QEX. Here they are:
A summary of these articles was published in QST for March 2010, pp. 30-33.
In QEX for May/June 2010 letters to the editor I made the following comments. "I think too many people are taking the QST article as gospel when it should be viewed only as an interesting set of expriments which shed some light on a few questions. Even the QEX series, which is much more detailed, raises far more questons than it answers. I was really hoping to encourage others to expand on my work (as I expanded on Sevick's) by showing how it might be done. 73, Rudy N6LF"
