Hey Bob, did I ever get those HP-1's back?   Can't find 'em anywhere!
(regrettably, I seem to have misplaced them when moving up to VT)

I would agree that for contest work, the Heil cans need bandwidth 
limitation.  The good Mr. Heil has been pretty receptive to marketing
ideas...so perhaps he'll contemplate the performance segment of our
market, and see what that brings.  (copied herewith, to stimulate
discussion off-reflector).  

Meanwhile, a question:  Has anyone else gotten tired of wrapping the
6' cord around their desk chair, and decided to shorten the proset
