Here is a photo on the Net, Labeled as a TH-5
Looks pretty darn close to the Unknown:
It's like mine. Only one element without traps and the rest have 4 each.
He's describing one that has two elements without traps and one element with
just two traps.
I'd guess the one with 2 traps is the 20 and 15 meter reflector while one of
the elements without a trap is the 10 meter reflector and the other is a
director for 10. That would give 3 elements on 20 and 15 with 4 on 10.
All the Best, 73,
