Saw the post re field termination of long wires...

A trick I've used before is to drop the last 20-30 feet onto the ground.
As pointed out the intent is to absorb the energy and kill the
reflections.. This will do it.

        Second thing: The terminations (600 ohm or so) at the distant ends
of this array could maybe be a poor ground rod. You are trying to dissipate
energy instead of having it reflect back, anyway. Why not soak it up in the
ground rod (a deliberately poor one)?
        What think, gang?
