OK, I finally got some pictures of the two element antenna I'm trying to identify. The antenna on the right side of the photos is a vertical and I know what it is. The unknown antenna is described below and has cast parts.

I would take photographs, put them up on the internet somewhere, and give us the link. You may get a precise ID if you do. Really hard to get some things across with words. :>)

    I'm trying to find out what sort of 2-element tribander (10-15-20m) I
    have.  I bought it used about used about 20 years ago and just dug it
    out of the garage.

    I  always 'thought' it was a HYgain, but I'm not sure of that.  I
    around the Internet and found an instruction sheet that is cc 1962
    for a
    HYgain TH-2.  However my beam may be an older version of that or...
    something entirely different.

    Mine has 8 traps.  The elements are mounted to the boom with
    nicely made
    parts which look to me to be cast.  One of these castings has an SO239
    mounted on it.

    The boom appears to be made in two pieces and that seems strange to me
    because it is quite short.  I don't see how to join the boom pieces,
    although one end of each piece has been made 'out of round' so those
    ends of each boom piece must fit together.  Maybe there is a missing
    piece to joint the two boom pieces to a mast.

    Can someone in the list suggest what I might have and the best way to
    get an instruction sheet or manual for it?
