Picked up a 160m 600w capable screwdriver a few weeks ago. Its a beast. Was thinking of heading to the beach in the winter during one of the 160m contests. 100w max since I don't have a mobile amp. Current capability for it includes a Hustler 54" extension that couples to the MFJ-1979 telescoping whip, which gets up about 17ft. It gets a bit flimsy at the top so effectively lets call in 12ft. So I have a huge loading coil, abt 17ft of whip, and I can drive on the beach. Would it work better to use radials into the surf, since I can get that close? Or run out 1/4 radials for 160m from the base of the screwdriver, insulating the vehicle? Something else? Trying to see how best to make use of the grounds I have available. But what sticks out is my element is likely to be much shorter than the radials. I suppose I could float a kite or something. Not sure if that ends up being a second problem. And in case I can't get to the beach, I could always head up the mountains here, so that may be a similar solution minus using saltwater radials. In all cases the truck is parked, not in motion, and I have ample space to run radials of any real length. Ideas?
