Reproduction of 50-51 and 52-53 Hirschmann antennas

#1 Post by Joris Koning » Wed Apr 14, 2021 12:52 pm

Per the request of a well known European pre-A specialist restorer I have made perfect reproductions of both the 50-51 and 52-53 Hirschmann antennas as installed by the factory.

These antennas were modelled after a NOS one in my collection (50-51) and a 52-53 antenna graciously lent to me by mentioned restorer. These are hand made by me with all sizes, materials and surface finishes as original down to the engraved Hirschmann H on the ferrule. Most antennas are spoken for but I have parts left to build some more. Tip style and color can be made at customer request. Several different versions can be seen in period pictures.
