hello all...I was wondering if anyone has experimented with the active receiving whip antenna design posted on the kongsfjord website.  The article and design is:

I am interested in trying one of these, but I know that the 2N5160's are hard to find and when one finds them, they aren't cheap.  So I was hoping that maybe someone has used a suitable replacement for them and would like to share the info.

Any info would greatly be appreciated....
