Hi Peter.

I had a TH-3 on the tower here at 35 feet for a while (about a
month).  It didn't seem to perform too well for me on 10 meters. 
In fact, I have a home-brew 2 element monobander and the
monobander always worked better than the TH-3 (at the same
height) so I took the TH-3 down and used the aluminum to make a 2
element 20 meter monobander.  They both work better than the TH-3
did.  73
