Hi Ted,

I was comparing both the later Hygain versions and, presumably, the 
similar MFJ variants with the original Hygain Long Johns.

Those original Hygain Long Johns were nothing like the 205BA etc. 
series with which you may be familiar. (Incidentally, I'm a great fan 
of the 204BA) I suspect they were designed and built to out-Telrex 
Telrex in terms of ruggedness. There was a full-size 3el 40m, I think 
a 6-el 20m, but maybe only 5el, on booms which were 4" or 4.5" 
diameter, as well as 15 and 10m antennas.

I have the catalogue somewhere and it may even have pricing, which 
was frightening!
