Somehow, I suspect that antenna is not period to the rig, most of the older antennas looked more like a household antenna vs that odd thing.

as far as i can tell you i belive it is original from what the previous owner told me but who knows the studs on top that hold the anteena wire i replaced they were so rusted they snapped off when i went to take theam loose it works good now only problem is it takes two people to raise it a real pain in the backside the inside crank handle and plate are all intact thats why i think its orginal just no name on it looks like it used to have a decal on it but is long gone

That looks a bit home-made to me, but I can't really say for certain. Have you tried checking with Wineguard to see if their gears match up to it?

Well after a little google and reading I've noticed that there are other people with a Scott and fetzer antenna that have the same problem with the gear. I read that one guy modified a gear to make it work in his. I saw another guy state that the company that once made the "Airex" antennae was split up a bit so original parts may be difficult to find. I do definitely bid you luck on this one. If you know a machinist maybe you could bribe them into making you a new one?

I found this at another site
"Airex/Target 360 was a common RV antenna and parts were stocked by most dealers. The antenna was made by The Scott & Fetzer Company and sold under the brand name Airex."
If you did not completely destroy the old gear you may be able to make a new one out of PC.7 Epoxy Paste.
