I forget who suggested it, but today I ran a radial from the ground rod under the Procaster, about 120 feet and attached it to my well. The well pipe is something like 300 - 400 feet deep. When the house was built in 2006 the contractor told me that the well had to go either 394' or 494' to hit water. Our well has never run dry and we have no water softener or water filter on it, but many people have told us that it is the best water that they have ever tasted. I agree. Our property is about 150-200 ft. above the street and above the Brandywine which runs parallel to our street. It has made a significant improvement to the Procaster's reach. It may be subjective but from driving around I'd say it's about a 5-10% improvement. I have not re-tuned the antenna yet but I'd expect that will help a little more.
