Ham Radio-Can an antenna work while laying on the ground?

Here's an interesting antenna experiment you can try if noise is making HF operations difficult.

In this video, Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) discusses the "on the ground" antenna he used in a recent portable field operation.

The antenna seems to work well enough as a NVIS system (near vertical incident skywave).  Your results may vary.
