Crystal radio initiative

I have been working on a large coil for the crystal radio initiative. This is a few pics of it


Frequency : 800khz
Coil diameter:4'10"
Number of turns: 18
Wire length : 247'
Coil height:14.4"
Wire diameter : 0.5"

I made a hemisphere from copper pipe, with a 16 point aluminum star as my top load. All that is left is to bury my 4 a/c radiators as my ground, wrap a 12" by 2 turn secondary coil on the bottom and build my resonant capacitor. Hopefully I can tune it up to receive some usable energy. U can follow me ,
