Hirschmann Aerial


I found this automatic aerial and it is apparently a good make:


Has anyone ever used this aerial? I am replacing a poor quality Maplin one which lasted a year before ceasing.

These were fitted as standard to Rolls S/Shadows in the late 60s/70s and never let me down

Member car:

GTV v6

Fitted one a couple of weeks back after reading loads of bad reviews about the Maplin ones. Managed to get it in black off of ebay, suits the silver car well.

In terms of fitting I had to adapt the metal bracket in the car, and solder the old connectors onto the new aerial. It comes with fittings that could replace the rubber grommet on the car. However, I managed to get the nut that screws onto it to fit inside the existing fitting so it looks exactly the same - although I need to double check how waterproof this arrangement is.
