Here's a quote from WA6RIK that may be just what you need:

"BTW-There is an article in the brand new issue of Communications
Quarterly (pp 9-27) by K5IU, "Optimal Elevated Radial Vertical
Antennas," which may be of interest to you. He is touting shortened
elevated radials (< 60 degrees) as being better than elevated quarter
wave ones. The advantage of the shorter radials (with a radial
inductor) is making the current in the radials more evenly
distributed." 73/George, WA6RIK

Many thanks to George for the info. 73, Cecil, W6RCA, OOTC
