RE: Weather/coil performance

That doesn't sound very good for the environment. A suggestion for making an
alternative ground in your conditions it to bury some old junk and ground to
it. Surface area is the key here. Anything metal would work, like car wheels
or any large hunks of metals. Bolt wire to them and bury them any place that
you can.

For a high power coil,  I'd use four to six 10 ft
copper plated steel ground rods pounded at about
a 45º angle with all their tops being at a center
point.   Even in a very cold area, like here in
Colorado in the winter,  that should be below the
frost line sufficiently as the ends would still
be 7ft down at that angle.   I read where one guy
liked to pound the rod about halfway into the
ground and the 'wallow out' the hole a little and
remove the rod and fill the hole with a good
electrolyte solution(copper sulfate eg) then
after that soaks in...maybe even repeat the
filling a few times,  then pound the rod all the
way down.    I have a disadvantage where I
live...in the mountains.....there a great reason
they are called the ROCKY mountains  haha.  It's
hard to pound ten ft rods through the rocks.   I
do have one decent possibility for a good ground
though....the leach field for the septic
tank.   It has a lil problem and one small area
stays wet...even though it gets fairly cold
here.   I might have to buy a few 50lb bags of
copper, potassium or magnesium sulfate and pour
them onto that wet spot and let it diffuse
through the whole field.  I imagine that could
make for a sufficiently conductive ground.  The
copper sulfate might have to be flushed down the
sink or toilet though....it could kill the roots
of the plants nearby if I just poured the
crystals onto the ground.....that would not be
the case with potassium or magnesium sulfate though.

   Once the water is no longer liquid, the ions that
allow current flow are trapped, more or less immobile.
If natural warming, or warming from current from coil
melts water around 'ground electrode', thing simprove.
