Interesting short all-band antenna

   As a lark, Vikki & I decided to see just what we could do with an
all-band (HF through UHF) short verticle antenna. This is not exactly
a QRP story, so don't yell...
  We contacted from Chicago IL to central PA on 20M's Maritime Mobile
net, with an S-4 report. Untill chased off by t-storms, she was on
40M's 3905 Century Club, talking with Alabama and Ohio, getting 3x3
reports. She ran 70 watts peak SSB, into an 8 inch clip lead draped
from the hot end of a Cantenna resistor at 15 feet.
  That's 70 watts into a dummy load, working several hundred miles.
So, let's hear again how good the Isoloops must be to work 230
countries, eh? ;-)
