- The old “bug-tamer” is simple to make from hobby shop brass tubing. I’ve made several and just added some photos to the photo section.73,Troy, W6HV
Found out that Vibroplex sold the "bug-tamer" before the "Vari-Speed.
It was dis-continued.

I remember the term, too, but I'm no longer sure what one is. Pix at http://kd8jhj.blogspot.com/2010/04/kd8jhj-bug-tamer.html show something like the Extend-a-Dot, but other pages show the Vari-Speed while calling it the Bug Tamer. Maybe it has become a word like "Kleenex" -- people use the brand name for ALL tissues.

Somewhere in the back of my old mind I had remembered a "bug tamer".
For some reason I plugged that in, do you remember it?
Anyway I have both the flat & round Vari-Speed ant am very happy with them.
