However, I red articles where other people suggested to make as many random length radials for ground installation for better performance. Less radials will significantly reduce the effectiveness of your antenna. I used an antenna analyzer but a SWR bridge could have been employed just as easily with identical results. Several companies sell add-on kits or traps for bands like 60, 30, and 17 meters.
