Gentlemen - -

I am getting ready to put my Thunderbird Mark III tri-band back up after having cleaned & serviced it.

I have been working 17 meters with a 2 wire dipole/wire yagi in the trees.

Is it possible to use the tri-band antenna on 17 meters by employing an antenna tuner, or will the traps and element lengths on 15 & 20 meters interact making it impossible.

Thank you,
K0JMD

Please disregard my question - - upon searching the web a little further, I found the answer, possibly, but could damage the traps.
