That's good news...

Copper oxide is a good insulator.

Not a big deal at this point, but another way I could have described the ANT-121 setup would be; Adjust each dipole rod to a length of about 13 to 15 inches each. Lowering each rod to horizontal would be the ideal angle, in theory. With the rods parallel to the ground, that would result in the tip to tip distance being about 30 inches. (Ahhh who am I kidding, that many words makes it a big deal. )

Yeah, the wind is blowing more KGO fumes your way...
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
