Re OX and JEO...
The entire purpose was never ever to actually use the tree as a functuional daily antenna. The sole and only porpose was just to \'Load It\' just for the pure scientific knoledge that it could be loaded at all
The use of the tree as a routine functional antenna or any other use other than just to see if it would load was never intended nor was it contemlated.
And by the way the experiment was a failure of sorts. It did load somewhat, a little, but no where near good enough for me to consider the scientific experiment an unqualified success. I moved the feed point up and down as previously mentioned---a little change but not enough to meet my criteria for success.
Perhaps some mineral additives to the dirt around the antenna to dope up the sap makeing the sap more agreeable to RF flow. And the Scientific Experiment moves on.
LOL and the guy who suggested the small dwarf trees as coils....NAAAA not coils, Caps. Put two of the little trees side by side and move them closer or farther appart to change the cap value
