I have need for a replacement antenna for my L-Per on 121.5mhz.     The unit is the blue colored receiver and is about 30 years old.  Works great.

Any one have one available

You can try e-bay, but I haven't seen any useful L-per gear on there in several years. Are you missing the antenna completely, or is yours just in need of repair?

I'm willing to bet it won't DF anymore but will receive. Those lovely diodes!

OP, PM me with your email address, and I'll send you the antenna schematic and parts info.

The diodes and resistors inside the little blue box are VERY small. They require delicate and precise soldering, and diode polarity is important. The lengths of the cables are critical, so you need to be careful during disassembly, so you maintain the correct lengths.

If you have the antenna version with the molded cable connection, you're pretty much screwed.

Tap into your local HAM radio club. They will likely have a few folks comfortable with making new replacements for old equipment.
