Some where in the past I read a article on this setup. This was the
presidential railcar, one problem was how to make an efficient HF antenna
for a railcar that would not hit the roof while going through tunnels, etc.
They used small standoff insulators and a wire loop. Shown are the SP-600
receivers, I think the transmitter was a Hallicrafters BC-610.
