Too bad it's not really on the way anywhere, I'd love to drop on them some
time but it's not worth ~14 hours each way! Ohio sure has a lot of wide
open spaces...

Wow! Well let me know how much you want for it, but before I commit to the
deal, do you know where I can find documentation on the BC-223? I have
nothing at all on it, so I don't know what it takes to feed one, and I don't
want to swear I'll never modify anything until I know how dependent it is on
external stuff that I'll never have (there are a couple of big gnarly
multi-pin connectors on the side so I'm wondering if there's a control
box or what -- even though there seem to be enough switches and knobs for
everything I can think of already on the front panel).

Boy I really wish I hadn't forgotten my Cantenna at an old apartment, well
if it's only 10 W then I should be able to solder up a bunch of 2W carbon
comp resistors and that will be good enough to play with it before sicking
it on the airwaves. I can only imagine what the output impedance wants to
be, with the big ceramic separate outputs. Somewhere I still have most of
a roll of honest-to-god ladderline, but I don't know if a full-wave loop
would fit in my yard (guessing that the impedance is a bunch higher than
50 ohms).
