Thought I would add a few pictures to show my tapered antenna on my Sd.Kfz.222 using a Mike Stannard rubber base, please not this is not the official mounting point of a Stab antenna on an Sd.Kfz.222 it should be attached to the turret.

Hello Mark,

Interested in buying one of your Antenna, are they made of tube or solid bar?

Thanks

Current batch of tapered antennas are now sold out.

If you have ordered an antenna this has been put to one side and is reserved, for postage on Friday morning I must have payment ASAP please.

Another batch of tapered antenna will be ready in 2 weeks’ time if you wish to order one in the meantime please send me a PM and as soon as they are ready I will contact you.

Thanks to all who have ordered.

Good question Lewis, the scales I have are just cooking scales the best I can say is standard tubular type is 0.2oz and the tapered version is 0.4oz this is not a reliable measurement the difference is purely in the brass rods. :D

Hi All,

Not intending to hijack the thread but this is something Mark and I spoke about at Bovy. This is going off to my metal caster.

Best regards

Dave

Hi Simon,

Issue at the moment is finding a suitable flexible resin. We are working on it though.

Best regards

Hi Dave
That looks good, will have one of those from you when they are ready.
Like Simon said, I think the aerial mounts would sell well if you could find a way to produce them.
Regards
Steve

Dave I like the base clamp which I will be able to include with the next batch.

Simon/Steve thanks for the complement, the tapered antenna have been a long time coming.
