I've clamped on to a strand of barbed wire fence as a ground plane for verticals. Works fine if you've got a tuner. There was someone I heard about who hooked into a guardrail for a SW tx and was well heard, but I don't recall who it was. That RF has to go somewhere.

I've used chain-linked fence as part of a ground radial system at HF. If you got it, might as well use it.
Just somebody with a radio and a pair of headphones...

So have I.  The galvanization process makes the signals go twice as far. ;)

Dammit! Now I've got visions of dozens of zinc washtubs filled with salt water acting as a ground for a ginormous vertical.

I remember hearing something about that too.

By God, I think you're right! How could I forget the Cap'n and his pal, the Runaway Maharishi?
