The purpose of this work is give some field notes on exploring the idea that a generalized Tate construction tk reduces chromatic level in stable homotopy theory. The first parts introduce the construction and discuss chromatic reduction. The next section makes a computation and gives the duals of L(n) = L(n)1. The last part looks ahead, mentioning how this computation could be extended to finding the duals of Steinberg summands in corresponding Thom spectra of negative representations, L(n)-q, and presents an equivariant loopspace machine. Finally, observations made are pulled together and brought back to compute the base case of the generalized Tate construction, evaluated on a sphere. Results parallel work of A. Cathcart, B. Guillou and P. May, and N. Stapleton, among others.
