I would say that your problem are the traps, because they only come into
play on 20 and 15,
I think that you are going to have to take the antenna down off the tower
and clean up the traps.
I'm in the process of re building my 30 year old TH3 Mk3 at the moment and
hope to have
it back in service early this summer,
Best of luck, Mike EI2DJ / G4GXN
