I moved my loading coil yesterday and the ground loss dropped from 103 ohms
to 91 ohms. That is 12 ohms removed at a stroke!
Previously it had stood in a corner of the patio by a wooden open lattice
fence and adjacent to an earth bank.
It is now in the middle of a flat space about 4 metres square on grass but
raised about 30 cms.
So it is worth trying different positions and keeping it in the clear really
does make a difference.
Whether my signal will be any better is another matter.
