Description

A cylindrical radio antenna. The antenna has a series of discs around the shaft which are covered in braided wire. The coils of wire would have been used to balance radio resistance detectors to their different length and orientation, this would have been dependent on the frequency which they are meant to detect. The body of the antenna may be made of a phenolic resin with a sawdust filler.
