Having taken to portable operations recently, the vast expanses of open ground ahead of me yields thoughts of all sorts of simple antennae that could be thrown out, especially as 10m-high fishing poles are sometimes out of the question due to high wind, and are always something of a pain in the proverbial to mess about with! I wonder if anyone has - or could - model the radiation patterns of a grasswire? I'm curious as to whether there is any usable DX pattern from such a wire? I'm rather useless at modelling software, so better to ask those who are not! Given that most portable operations, especially up a rocky mountain, probably can't get anywhere near an ideal ground, the model would be most useful by incorporating a counterpoise (shown at right angles to the radiator in the web-based information.) Thanks!
