    This may be perceived as a dumb question, please go easy on me!

    I obtained a used Swan TB-4HA recently. The antenna is in fairly good condition. I have a question about the traps. A couple of them rattle as if they have a small stone in them. Unfortunately, without the assembly manual, I have yet to figure out how to get the traps apart to clean them. Would a small amount of debris offset the trap's performance?

    Does anyone per chance know where I can obtain a copy of the manual for the TB-4HA (or its smaller siblings (TB-2HA and TB-3HA)? If, so I would appreciate it.

    Good luck with finding the manual... I tried to do that 10 to 15 years ago -- no luck.

    With the Internet in full swing, I suppose anything is possible though.

    Those Swan tri-banders were STOUT, well-built antennas! They reminded me of Moseley.

    Good Luck and Merry Christmas!
