Myself and several other Vampire owners are struggling desperately to find the antenna cable reel that was fitted to the back wall of the Vampire. The reel fed the cable to the Adcocks array mounted on top of the fitted 21-metre mast. I can get the reels remanufactured but I need either detailed dimensioned drawings or close-up photos that are sufficiently detailed to allow dimensions to be inserted, always assuming I can get close enough to a reel to apply the tape measure! As a starting point I know the reel is 760mm in diameter, 170mm deep and is mounted on a spindle that has a diameter of 45mm
