Hygain did have a series of tribanders that used wire
loops on the ends of the elements but they preceded
the TH series. I'm looking at a 1957 QST that shows
one in a Hygain add. It's a three element model
number 152T-3 and the boom is specified at 18 ft.
These are the the antennas with the "fat" traps, look
like 4 inch diameter or so.
