Hi Roger this kind of antenna works best with POOR grounds ....it is rubbish
on the sea shore. They depend on a reasonable skin-depth in the ground at
the operating frequency, to form and underground loop ("ELF Communication
Antennas" M.L.Burrows  ISBN:0 906048 00 1). They work well on receive at VLF
(see Marconi about 1902) because higher frequency noise is absorbed in the
ground. 500k is probably getting a bit marginal unless you are on desert
sand or rock. But of course and bit of conductor will act as a aerial to
some extent.:-))
