Old car aerial - what are the chances?!
Did a repair on a friend's motorhome aerial last week, but it would be nice to get a replacement; although it 'works', I've no idea what length the original extended aerial should be, so how short the repair is! Also, the bottom section is corroding through, so will snap off at some point.
If he lived closer, I could drill out the chrome stem from the cast body, and solder in a new aerial, but couldn't do this during a fleeting visit.
The problem with a full aerial replacement is that my friend is not very DIYish, and lives in Wales. To avoid the agony of him having to try pulling the aerial cable thro' numerous bulkheads and panels, the ideal outcome would be to find the same antenna and he can replace just the aerially bit. This is held on by one wee bolt.
This is obviously the longest of long shots, but does anyone recognise this fellow from 20+ years ago?!
I'm loving the cast finned section - clearly has a major effect on signal capture...
I've tried Google images, but no luck.
