Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Elevated Radial AM Antenna Grounding System Video by Nott Ltd


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSoUjs2JwGg. A fascinating discussion from respected broadcast engineer Ron Nott (K5YNR) as he discusses the use of elevated radial systems for AM broadcast stations.  Much of what is said in this video can be applied to amateur radio operations.   Elevated radials seem to work as well or better than radials running along the ground.

There are several great articles about elevated radial systems on the internet, among them research done by C.L. Cebik and this one by Ron Nott (K5YNR), the producer of this video:

"Transmission Guide:  The Elevated Radial System", Ron Nott (K5YNR), in "Radio Guide", August 2006, p. 8.
