Proposed new 474.2kHz Earth-electrode baseline

The yellow line shows the approximate 15m baseline used currently on MF WSPR.
The red line shows the proposed new earth-electrode baseline which should place the northern electrode well clear of buried pipes and wires. It should be better, but you can never be sure until you try it! I (or a friend) need to hammer in some new ground rods first at either end of the baseline wire.

Might be interesting to have both, East-West and North -South. If you wired in a Goniometer then you could have a rotatable earth. Must be worth a lot of brownie points to someone.

One worry might be that if you turned the knob the wrong way at a 24Hour rate you might stop the Earth spinning......
