The 'High Power' conversion makes it into a TA-33 as opposed to TA-33 jr..
The mod just replaces the traps with some with higher power handling
capability. I used one for years with the TA-40KR, 40 meter dipole mod
(extends the driven element and adds a huge trap), and it worked well.. The
antenna design itself is not as efficient as more modern designs, but if the
price was right, enjoy.
