1. A system, comprising:
an excitation source;
a guided surface waveguide probe including a charge terminal elevated at a height over a lossy conducting medium, a ground stake, and a feed network, the feed network being coupled between the ground stake, the excitation source, and the charge terminal; and
a conductor that extends a distance from the ground stake radially away from the guided surface waveguide probe across the lossy conducting medium.
