Paul Cianciolo calling here from the States.
Reading your post below it would lead one to believe that trees are somehow
in series with the antenna?
Or atleast the ground return path? Could you describe your antenna and the
Also does this decrease in resistance cause an increase in the rediated
Thank you John

Subject: LF: "Ground" losses
By risking life and limb at the top of a precarious ladder, cutting off as
much of the surrounding greenery as possible, I have further reduced my
apparent "Ground" resistance by a further 8 ohms. Now down to 85 ohms.
It seems that an extra metre separation of far end (highest voltage) from
trees can make that much difference.
So I just have to cut back another 10 metres of the surrounding forest to
reduce it to zero, then alle achtung, hi!
