Having stated several times in QSO's that my location in Kansas has exceptional ground conductivity and
therefore I attribute that in part to being able to operate with no radials.  My custom made vertical is ground
mounted on a chain-link fence post, the feed point being not much more than ten feet above ground.  In addition
there is a seven foot 1/2 inch copper pipe ground in the earth and attached to the post.  Fencing on both
 the North and South sides of this city lot are interconnected, affording a great counterpoise.  In examining the
below map, in the very Northeast corner of Kansas is the number and rating of 30.  That's one of the best
ratings in the entire continental United States.
