Here's a trick we use in ham radio. Take the magnet mount antenna, cut a circular piece of
metal the same radius as twice the height of the antenna, so the antenna sees a piece of
metal the same height as the antenna in all directions. Place antenna smack dab in the
middle. You got the effect of ground plane radials on the magnet. You can stick this on
top of a refrigerator or a cabinet. Works. DUKE, WB9OJD
