Default per my knowledge radials are long wires placed on the surface of the ground, or slightly below, or a bit above. These provide, essentially, a reflective surface that is less lossy than the local dirt is. Think of them as shielding the dirt from your signal so it'll be reflected toward the horizon instead of being absorbed to heat the dirt and cook the worms. Most verticals will work much better with nice long radials of this kindor a good natural reflecting surface such as salt water. If you're on baked clay, you need radials.
