NOM-12 antenna base wanted

Post by damar2yxr » Sat Sep 01, 2018 5:24 am

I am looking for a correct looking antenna base for the NOM-12. It doesn’t need to be an original a reproduction would be effective as well.......having said that I guess an antenna would also be on that list.
Slowly, very slowly, we shall acquire what we need :)

Are you looking for the mp 37 antenna base or the box below that holds the antenna

I would be looking for the antenna base that is positioned on the outside of the Jeep on the drivers side. Sorry for the confusion.

No confusion was seeing if you needed the box the antenna mounts to

Not the usual position or shape that I usually see so let’s see what shakes out.

There’s the antenna mount

The photo you posted is of an NOM-12 with its standard loading coil housing which doubles as the antenna base mount for its MP-37 antenna base assembly.

The box on the outside that has the knob in it is reversed to the rear on the box it appears. The symbol on the jeep is Camp Pendleton

I don't see a knob or tuning box on the rear.

Here’s a crazy idea, I’ll even take your close up pictures of an antenna mount that any one might have of their own and maybe some dimensions and I could have it made.......just a thought. :D
