Default EC-121R "Batcat" question

Guys,
Iím building a EC-121R kit from the Heller Warning Star kit. Of course, what made the EC-121R unique was the many antennas to relay the Igloo White sensor data to the processing center. Does anybody know the nomenclature for the antenna just below & behind the aft cockpit window in the pix below? There is one each side of the A/C. Once I know what antenna it is, I can find a picture to scratch build a replica.





Thanks much!

RJ

G'day RJ,
That should be a nice model. Are you doing the shark mouth aircraft as per the pic you posted?

As best I can figure out from a bit of googling, those antenna are RHAW. Maybe AN/ALR-27 or AN/ALT-28....?? Only ten out of the thirty EC-121R had active ECM with RHAW plus better jamming and receiving capabilities.
HTH,
Devo

No, I'm doing the No. 21473 aircraft depicted on the Caracal decal sheet. Thanks for the info! I'm off to Google AN/ALR-27 or AN/ALT-28 & see what the antenna looks like.

Thanks again!
