Radials on Vertical Antenna Systems. Post 2059.

Thanks to Dan Vanevenhoven (N9LVS) for this good, basic introduction to the theory, construction, and use of ground radial and counterpoise systems for vertical HF antennas.

The ground radial/counterpoise system provides "the missing half" of a vertical antenna and allow it to be more efficient and stable.

Dan does a good job of comparing a ground radial system for an AM broadcast tower to a simpler radial arrangement for an amateur/ham radio vertical.
