(https://w5ylorg.createaforum.com/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2F&hash=4c182ae4f304f9c6a4d5ab9f816cc8285e24e1ac)FOR SALE: HEATHKIT CANTENNA DUMMY LOAD.  PRICE $50.  CONTACT DON WA5PRI 985 447 3711 or donald.bardwell@nicholls.edu .  If you have memories of "good ole days" and would like to own something with the Heathkit label, here is and inexpensive way to do that.  I have had the oil-filled cantenna for a long time and stopped using it when I started to get bad loads.  Recently I cleaned the contacts and "voila" it is working.  Running 900 watts 160 through 10 meters it shows an swr of almost 1 to 1.  On 6 meters the swr is slightly higher.  Memories!!!!
