I see all the charts etc, but impossible to really plug in actual ground conditions/ near path/ long path.
A monoband vertical in your backyard will be at it's best efficiency when at, or around, 28 ohms. Easily matched with paired 75 ohm 1/4wl feeders or a tuner, no big deal.
And if my only reference during construction was the swr meter, I would be happy with something around 2 to 1, as would any experienced mono vertical builder.
The addition of more radials is easily the fastest way to get to that point while leaving the1/4wl element untouched.

I spotted myself today on 12 meters and I worked a new state as a result.  12 meters is lightly used so I don't think a self spot is going to cause people to go ballistic.

It wouldn't do much good to ID the guy.  Too bad he started getting personal.  It's one thing to knock an organization, another to get personal.  Sounds like thinking the organization is more important than the people who they are supposed to be serving.  So far this week, four houses on the block have been retrofitted with the "HAM" AFCIs.  Ten more to go.  BTW, I looked at the box the HAM AFCIs come in and there is no difference in them and the old AFCIs.  Lots of room for mistakes.

Bad FM Master Oscillator crystal - off freq just enough to not make it through the tuned buffer amps.
