Lot's of stuff works on the ground when one is satisfied with the s/n ratio and directivity. Of course beverages come to mind, and sure enough, even dipoles or random "snakes".

The LOG concept is kind of the opposite of a highly directional beverage. Here, the directivity pattern is more like a vertical, even though layed horizontally on ground.

That can be useful, in addition to being able to lay down a large amount of wire into a confined space for most typical suburban lots. It's a good general-purpose low-band antenna.

Just another tool in our antenna kit...
