Amstrad Mobile Antenna Whip Length.

Post by The Collector » 25 Nov 2018, 15:33

As above, I'm trying to find out the length of the original whip that fits in the old red-based and branded Amstrad aerial if anyone has one in their collection please?

I have a 5ft whip from another aerial that I'm willing to cut down to length (about 3ft if memory serves me correctly), but it'd be nice to know the exact length to save me faffing around :)

I could use a piece of copper wire and chop that down bit by bit until I get a good swr length and then cut the whip to that size, but again, it's quicker just to ask first.


Cheers.

Hi Dave.

Bigpimp measured his boxed/carded one for me so I know the length of the 2 pieces if whip. However, if you can let me know if the whip connector piece separates the two pieces of whip inside it (if they don't actually come/touch together), that'd be handy as if they don't, it increases the length a touch.

Cheers.
