Subject: TH6 Problems - Help
To: CQ CONTEST
Previous E-discussion on refurbing Hygain traps got me started on refurbing an
old TH6DXX which has been out in the So. California smog for a few years.
Problem: some of the element joints have become so corroded that I can't
separate them, even with a pair of vise-grips (the universal antenna tool...).
Resistance across the joints is 3-5 ohms, which means I just can't leave them
this way. Has anybody had any experience with this problem?
Thanks - Kevin NC6U
