Hi everyone!

I need help identifying an antenna. It consists of two identical whips, about 58 in (145cm), loaded at around 14 in (35cm) from the top. One is mounted vertically on the bracket and is connected to the feed line via a PL 259 connector.
The other one is mounted on one side of the bracket at around 45 degrees from the horizontal plane.
You can see a drawing and some photos of the antenna at https://photos.app.goo.gl/JCTZkurGxbXxv1n13

Has anyone seen something like that?

cheers,

Andreas
