I did some thinking and decided to pull up half of the radials I laid down. My thinking was that the 6 ft width of the walkway between the house and the fence was too narrow for 12 radials without them interacting with each other. I needed to have some room next to the house and next to the fence for the weed eater to feed! HI!
The antenna is playing just fine. I have not been able to detect any on the air difference. I have 12 radials each approximately 65 feet long. SWR is good. Signal reports are good. So far so good.
Very 73 to you and yours.
Good Dx and Happy Island Hunting.
