That was a very interesting article. It would have been nice if they 
tried other devices in their custom version mixer too, like bigger 
diodes. I think the commercial mixers are optimized for wideband use 
at typical power levels, but one specifically for low frequency like 
5 or 10 MHz could be made even better. I wonder how a ring of matched 
1N5817s would work at saturated power levels - maybe +20 dBm or so.
