Note that the article talks about the Kintronic being 1/5 the height of a monopole, but in the actual tests, it was about 1/3 the height of the monopole. Basically, it's just a top hat loaded cage vertical. The short height works fine as long as you have an excellent ground (which they do) and you can tolerate narrow BW (that's FB on the BCB).
The SWR bandwidth (at least modeled) isn't too bad: ~ 100 kHz at 160M between 2:1 points.
