I have had the priviledge of being subscribed to this list for about a year
I absolutley enjoy and learned a lot. Thank you. Many times though the
will engage topics that I do not understand.... So I hit the books.. Thank
Every now and then it seems neccessary to find several references on a topic
approach it from a number of "different angles"
This is the case with all this talk about ground systems, losses in earth,
trees, building, etc.
Can someone point me to a sight where some of this is explained?
For instance is a vertical antenna system sort of like a complex circuit of
L, C, and R?
With some of the R being the earth? Some of the C being to ground in series
with this R that is is series
with the L? Isn't there L in the ground path if we put down radials. Is
not there C between those radial and the antenna? And the earth for that
matter. Do trees shunt current to earth? There seems to be a million
different values that need to be considered!!!
So... I am very confused. I am in the Northeastern US with 3 acres of
property and 130" tower.
Needless to say I am chomping at the bit for 136 Khz to accepted for use
here in the states.
I realize that these are basic questions but I want to understand.
There are list members from all over the world subscribed here which is why
I pose the topic to this list.
Many times a RSGB book will explain a topic better/differently than the
say the domestic books.
Confused in Connecticut. Anyone else in the same boat?
