Soil Conditions in Southern Ontario
Soil conditions are a predictor of good ground wave propagation. Agricultural soil and proximity to water, such as lakes, rivers and swamps indicate good to excellent ground wave propagation. Looking at the map, it is predicted communications via ground wave could be challenging in the Kingston/Brockville area due to the Canadian Shield. The St. Lawrence river could offset some challenges. Mapping ground wave propagation in this area could be interesting and challenging.
