    The deepest hole I have here is 5400 feet, that I use for my ground which is an oil well casing.

    I have...and what makes it all the more special? My antennas are wires and an aluminum stick, no yagis.

    You would be hit with tons of fines and fees for not having "X" permit(s) before you got very far. Then there are the fines for environmental regulation violations.

    Wouldn't that be something if the whole ocean leaked out because of some ham.

    Make sure your HOA rules don't prohibit drilling holes through the earth. Even if it's not explicitely prohibited, filling up the neighborhood with Indian Ocean water would probably fall under the "other nuisance" clause of the CCRs.

    Count me as one of them. I refuse to ruin a nice automobile or truck, by poking holes in them.
