Mosley's traps are actually two traps in one housing.  The outer part of the 
trap is the 15 meter element tip.

According to the Force12 catalog, the C-4XL is a C3 forward staggered with a 
2 element 40 meter (linear loaded 37' elements) beam.  It uses 2 feedlines, one
for 20/17/15/12/10 and one for 40.

Subject: Info wanted on tilting up complete towers
Message-ID: <199508020350.VAA28774 at>

I have heard a few stories about east coast stations tilting up complete
Rohn 25/45/55 towers including rotator and antennas.  But I don't recall
who/where was doing this.  I am working on my book and would like to include
some info on this topic.  Any leads as to whom to contact would be appreciated.

Subject: contest amp. schematic

Hello all,
I would very much appreciate a xerox copy of the schematic
for a Dentron ML2500-B.  That's the -B model!
I already have one for the -nothin' model, on an old
papyrus.  If anyone could supply such a thing, I'd
appreciate it.  I'm doing a CONTEST conversion from
8875's.  Those guys are too pricey.
Many thanks,
