The 80 240 came with a manual antenna, mine got broken off, and can`t source another one. finally found an electric Chinese one in PNP just so the radio works. eventually I`ll find the proper one for it.

The only manual one`s I have seen for the 240 are made by the Chicom`s, and aren`t even close to the original.

I have a 240 manual antenna available...
