Does anyone know where I might find a pair of portable TV telescopic antenna rods, of the type that retracts  inside the TV but can be swiveled sideways when pulled up?

Yes I know they don't serve any purpose these days! But they would complete a restoration.

Shipping halfway around the world is expected!

There are plenty of telescopic antennas available on the net but they all assume they will be folded flat on top of the enclosure. That is not workable with this TV.

Before you suggest a repair or a grafting in of a replacement, one of the antennas is missing entirely and the other just has its support bracket and a coil spring left.

@irob2345 Sorry can’t help, I know exactly the type you refer to, Hacker Radio used them on their portable radios in the 1960’s and 70s.
