    Hello I just got a th3 three element Yagi and I'm trying to find trap covers for it and turning up nothing. Wondering if anyone could point me to some. If not what's the The opinion on using heat shrink?

    Do you mean the end caps on the traps? Yeah, use heat shrink. Don't cover the entire trap.

    Just a thought, but have you tried calling MFJ?. They took over the HyGain line a few years ago, and they may have spare parts in stock.

    I have a TH 3. You are wise to seal the end caps on the traps but do not encase the entire trap. Make sure the drain holes are down however. I used electrical tape at the edges of the trap ends and the coated the ends with silicone.
