Avanti AV-281 antenna

Post by rabbiporkchop » 31 Jul 2017, 10:18

Are these still being manufactured? If so, is there an English language website where they can be purchased?

I found an Italian website that carries them. Hopefully I can find an English website that sells them.

i think avanti went bust in the early 90's so the chances of you finding a new and real moonraker are slim. but i know a few here on TM1 got themselves some NOS moonrakers a few years back from a guy in holland, maybe someone still has one of those still knocking about.
the antenna on the site is most likely to be a remake of the Original

Had to flog mine to help pay for car bits. I'm still a bit miffed :(

Last one of those I saw on ebay was going for £79 IIRC.
