    V-rabbit antenna rod

    A friend has damaged one antenna rod of her V-rabbit aerial and wants to replace it. I understand they just screw in to the main mounting block.

    Anybody got one available for sale? Just a rod or the whole antenna if you prefer.

    On here or PM me.

    If you don't find one, just measure up the length of the broken element or if it's lost, the remaining good one and fabricate something. An antenna is just a bit of metal in the air, there's absolutely nothing about it that requires any great precision at all except the method of attaching it to the block must be the same and the length must be the same. The broken element could be repaired with a metal sleeve but you need to keep electrical continuity across the break.
