A Q of 100 for 10 and 15 meter traps seems very low.  I beleive that our (TH7DX)
trap coils are closer to Q=300.  I can measure them and post the results if
anyone is interested.

I also agree with Tony K1KP, that shortening a dipole element only reduces it's
gain very slightly, on the order of fractional dB.
