Does anyone have any of the later antenna brackets as shown in the photos? The ones for the M-38A1.

Yes!

Also the right side rear mounting holes barely pass to the right of the body seam and the slot does not come close to indexing the single screw head on a M38A1.

I also have a third style bracket, not shown in the above photos, that mounts up against the trailer socket and perfectly indexes the single screw head on a M38A1

Am interested, am contemplating removing the AB-449 and installing the MP-50 type, but am hesitant to drill holes in the body I installed NOS.

Still looking for the later version of the SC-C-28591 Antenna Bracket for the M-38A1. Anyone have any NOS?

MY AN/VRC-10 AND ANTENNA

Post by Ben Dover » Mon Dec 05, 2011 8:52 pm

It is installed on the passenger side. Reason for tire mounted antenna, to avoid drilling holes in the side of my M-38A1. Radio is NOS.

As far as I can tell. The Tag has a SC number, but I have no idea how to check out all applications. Identical mounting holes are found on other antenna mounting brackets. This one is GI Issue, but I am sure that the shops that engrave plastic nameplates can duplicate them.
Will measure up the tag and post them for you.

Hello,

I searched for info on antenna mounts for M38a1 and found a series of posts from several years ago. Does anyone know if there are still later "L" brackets available (the ones that extend across the body seam)? I am thinking about cutting and welding an insert on the shorter bracket that I have to make it extend across the seam if I cannot find one for sale. I have one question if I take this route (welding insert) - I want to get the correct length - in the attached photo the bracket extends up to the grounding screw for the trailer electrical plug. Is this the correct location, or does the bracket actually slide under the grounding screw?

The M-38A1 Bracket is very hard to find.
