And I don't know what a *heath antenna* is, It sure sounds like it's an antenna and not
a dummy load
A Heath(kit) cantenna is a 50 ohm resistor in a gallon can (like a paint can) of oil. An SO239 connector is on the lid.

So yes, it is a dummy antenna.

Caveat: I've heard that some of the original oil from 20+ years ago may have contained PCBs, so one may want to think twice before purchasing a used one unless oil has never been installed.
