I'm going through the same thing right now, but since my traps are
suspect, I hesitate to post their values.

As I repair them, I'm going to be setting them to these values with a
Network Analyzer:

  TV1  10m      28     mHz
                12m      24
       TV2  15m      21.2
       TV3  17m      18.11
       TV4  20m      14.47
       TV5  30m      10.25

This is supposed to be their initial values from what I could find on the Web.

Once I get them set, I can measure the actual value of the caps and
coils and post them if you like.  I wasn't going to measure them since
I'm just looking to mechanically force them to resonance while
watching the Network Analyzer display, but if you need the values I
will measure them before I re-assemble the antenna.

>Hello, It would appear that an easier way of doing things was to post
a link to the picture I drew up showing the required measurements, and
I have done just that, here is the link to the picture I drew up
showing exactly what measurements I need...
