Were "rabbit ear" antennae ever sold for the Beomaster 7000?

Or indeed any of the pizza-box design Beomasters?

I've seen ones for the Ouverture/2500 but no idea if they are compatible with my 7000.

Anyone know of such a thing?

I don't think there is a mounting bracket on the 7000?

Thanks Peter - I've only seen the "vintage" rabbit ears and agree there isn't a similar mount, however, my old Ouverture didn't have an obvious mount for the corresponding aerial so just wondered if there may have been a specific adaptor.

Hmm, maybe I could fabricate something?

I'm going to stick my neck out and say no, there is no such mount.

... and if there was I'd still prefer a simple $7 dipole wire antenna.  A rabbit-ear antenna, being rigid, is adjustable in a limited number of positions.  A dipole wire antenna, on the other hand, is adjustable in an infinite number of positions.  Important benefit in picking up weak radio stations in difficult listening environments such as Manhattan/NYC.

There is a suitable mounting slot on the rear of my 6500. Lifting the slatted cover to the cable entry section reveals a slot at the top right of the metal work into which a 'rabbit ears' aerial can slide.

Thanks all

@ MediaBobNY - you're totally right, but for me I think it would definitely look the part!

@ Cleviebaby - interesting! I'll have to take another good look at the back of my 7000. Just checked my 4500 and there appears to be some kind of mount there next to the FM socket so fingers crossed!

I agree with Cleve re 6500 aerial slot so I guess there is one on the 7000 since they are the same box.

Trouble is the cable on a standard rabbit ears is not quite long enough to reach the socket.

I did have one with a longer cable so they must have made one at some time in the past.
