Re: Counterpoise/Faraday wall?

I have tried this solution, with a small 4" by 14" coil running from 2
MOT`s, and it worked fine. Tried it with the mesh against the floor
(concrete) at ground level, and against a brick wall at 3 floor level in
an old industrial style building. The connection from the bottom of the
coil to the mesh was 4" wide copper strap. I have also been using a
sheet of PCB leaning against the wall in my basement as ground, and it
works fine for up to 3-4 feet streamers.

Cheers, Finn Hammer
