The end with the contact screw for the body to element junction is
nearest the boom.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Cushcraft A3S trap question



I just purchased a used Cushcraft A3S w/40m element and am in the process of
taking it apart to clean the corrosion and oxidation built up on it. 


I have run across a problem, One or more of the 10m traps may have been
installed incorrectly. The arrows indicating the boom direct are long gone,
so I have no way of telling what direct they need to be re-installed. I do
see that one end the aluminum tubing sticking out of the trap measures 3”,
while the other is 2 ½” long.


Does anyone know which end, the long or short end of the trap goes to the
