Recently, Bruce Makas, K1MY inquired about the KT-34XA to KT-36XA upgrade kits 
from M2.

Yes, I have completed the upgrade conversion. In a nutshell &#8211; it&#8217;s 
a LOT of work. I would be embarrassed to reveal how long the process took to 
complete. (I went for the full bore, including all new element-to-boom clamps, 
and pinning all element joints, as in the KT-36XA.)

Mechanically, this &#8220;new&#8221; antenna is very impressive. It is a major 
improvement over the KLM design. I can&#8217;t comment about on-the-air 
performance, because the ant is currently nested at 20 feet. The SWR sweep 
looks pretty clean an all three bands.

The main reason for this post is to mention an omission (or at least, a 
confusing situation) in the conversion instructions. The confusion involves how 
you install the half-element assemblies. I talked with Mike at M2 and got the 
needed clarification.

This is too long and specific to post in this forum. If you are interested in 
this clarification, shoot me a private email.    

Thanks &#8211; Jim
