Which of the following factors determines ground losses for a ground-mounted vertical antenna operating in the 3 MHz to 30 MHz range?
A. The standing wave ratio
B. Distance from the transmitter
C. Soil conductivity
D. Take-off angle

Vertical antennas are sometimes criticized as being inefficient antennas. Soil conductivity is one
factor that determines ground losses for a ground-mounted vertical antenna operating in the 3-30 MHz
range.
