I did 2 things, as I had the same situation:

I built a 2 element yagi for 10, 15 and 20 and added a full size director for 20.  Modeled it off of the TA-33 manual.  Worked great at 50 feet.

Later, I rewound the 3rd set of traps and made a 12/17/30 meter dipole.

You could also build a trapped vertical.

I want to thank both of the gentlemen who answered my query. First, how much would these traps be worth? I have two, and they are in pretty good shape. Second, where would I find info on building a trap vertical? In the ARRL ant handbook? Anyway, thank you very much. Jim WA2BEV
