Been there--done that.
I'm using a couple of 2 el monobanders here--one for 20 and one for 10 (if
it ever opens up again). I found a 2 el monobander works a lot better than
the TH-3 it replaced. I used some stuff from a couple of old tri-banders
here that were defunct for the elements, etc. If you could find someone who
had a tri-bander that didn't work any more, you could find lots of good
I used a split element on a 1/4 wavelength boom and that gives a real good
50 ohm match. Don't need to use a hairpin, gamma, or any type of matching
network. Just use a coil of coax for a balun. GL
