the only trap antenna i have found that will handle the power is the old
Rayco Traps. back in the 60's i had a trap dipole using them ran a WRL
Globe Champion 350A into it for years. no problems. years later i burnt up
a lot of traps and verticals trying to run 100watts AM . like ham radio
things just got cheaper made as the years went by.
I passed those old Rayco traps around the area for years 4 other hams used
them and they came home about 8 yrs ago. i cleaned them up put high voltage
insulation dope on them and tryed them out guess what worked find . used
them again for about a year then retired them to a place of honor in the shack.
do not know if the new Rayco traps are as good and will handle the AM power
like the old ones would but they might be worth a look into.
Happy New Year
