[TowerTalk] How to identify traps in TA33

I sent Pedro some info since I have a TA-33jr with MPK 
dipole............... also had a TA-36 with 40 meter traps, too.
I told him the key was to measure the boom length.  The 
TA-33 had a 14 foot boom but the TA-33jr had a 12 foot 
boom.  If he has a 33jr with the MPK it would be with the 12 
foot boom.  I haven't heard back from him from the 
message I sent several hours ago.
