[Boatanchors] Fwd: radio

Mini-Products!  Blast from the past.  I just spend a few weeks running a
Mini-Products C-4 short vertical (vacation setup) and was pleasantly
surprised by the results.  Even worked a ZL (from Maine) during the IARU HF
contest.  Only disappointment was (1)poor propagation for many days due to
geomagnetic storms and (2)broke 2 of the "radials" off at the base due to
sloppy operator (me, that is) handling.  Sort of a boatanchor antenna if
there is such a thing.

I think the HQ-150 had a crystal filter. Then there was the HQ-1 but that
was an antenna by Mini-Products.
