Does anyone know if this slug is for the Bird 43.  Our club has one and it will not lock into place in the bird.  The slug is a little taller than our other slugs. It is about the thickness of the top ring that you turn- is how much longer it is than the other slugs we have.   Not for sure if this is the right forum to ask but did see another forum right off. 

Thanks
John

Never heard of a 1KH1 and it's not listed on Bird's website: http://birdtechnologies.thomasnet.com/category/elements-7-8-line-section-elements

The normal 1000W 2-30 MHz element for a Bird 43 is type 1000H.

Well that is what it says on it.  It has Bird Electronics across the top of the slug and and 2-30MC  1kh1 on the bottom part of slug, also has 609 in the middle where the arrow is on the slug.  I don't know if Bird Electronics made another model besides the Bird 43 or not.  I have tried to research it on Google but can not find anything on it.  We got this from a club member who is a silent key now.  So I don't know how old the slug is.  I was wondering if a person could change out the white part of bottom of the slug with another one and make it work?  Thanks for the help.

Since Bird is still in business, why not contact them directly and ask?

Yes that would probably be the smart thing to do.  I will email then.
