I will have a web search but can anyone recommend a supplier.
Check out the link in my post above, there are pics of the new and old models. The bullet connector is directly interchangeable (I was in the same 'boat' so to speak with the coax running through the A-frame)... BUT the first replacement new design I had the bullet connector collar (where the wire screws in beneath) was extremely tight, too tight to do up by hand... the aerial ended up fracturing on the main thread and fell off! I put this down to the fact that the collar holding in the wire underneath was so tight it stressed the main body of the aerial base causing it to crack and fall off!
The second replacement seemed much better and is thankfully still attached with no problems!
