One of the more tedious chores in building an efficient, effective HF vertical antenna is the creation of a ground radial or counterpoise system. Putting in such a system is often time consuming and and frustrating.  In this video from Rich Rogers, we see how a simple edger can help you lay out a buried radial system that will increase the efficiency of your HF vertical.  Each groove takes about 10 minutes to dig.  Ground or lawn staples will make sure your radial wires stay in the ground.  A good weekend project that will improve the performance of your HF vertical antenna.
