The soil at my QTH is composed mostly of gravel, which makes getting a
decent ground for RF purposes rather difficult for two reasons, driving in
ground rods, and
poor soil conductivity.  However, about 150 feet from my house is a water
well in
the form of an 8 inch diameter steel pipe that goes down 275 feet!  Has
on the list had any experience using such as a ground for a Marconi antenna?

In my experience the performance of different existing grounds for LF is
hard to predict. The only thing is to try it. Note the differences in
antenna current as you connect different grounds.
