Looking to identify the weird, accordion looking, antenna circled on the image. Donít care what it does, just trying to get enough information to scratch build it.

Thanks.

Could it be the same ?





The caption describes it as a "Harris antenna base rubber boot"....

It looks like it's just a plastic guard for the flex mount on for the whip antenna


Edit: ... or rubber...

It`s a rubber insulation for the Harris HF antenna. You can use the antenna from AFV Club M1130 CV.

It's a rubber boot covering the spring on the antennae mount. The boots wear out fairly quickly.
