NATO stock number 5985997014493 – Reel and Ant Wire Assy

Nato Antenna Part 5985997014493I recently purchased an interesting┬áreel of antenna cable made up of various different lengths of antenna wire and connectors in a contemporary design made of modern materials. The handle and bearing appears to be aluminium but the reel is of a high-impact plastic. This would have been fabulous if made in aluminium. There’s quite a few different lengths of this stuff and since I’ve yet to pull it all out in the garden, I can’t fathom it all out while its trailing around a room.

I need to work out exactly what it is. If you happen to know, can you email me please? I’d like to know the history and technicals.
