   BURIED a cahin link fence might not be bad.
   Upright, iffy.

   My impression is that the usual 'chicken wire' ground is to
   be used nuried.

   The math/physics works out that a thin ground, of large
   area is better than a few deep ones.

   It is intriguing to note that a lighting protection text,
   writ ca 1900, reccomended:
      ....wire mesh, such as is used for chicken cages...
