The little "half donut" ( about 1 to 1 and 1/2 inch diameter ) insulators
came in the following colors as the later models of KT-34 progressed
At least one other color was also manufactured...Blue.
I made this suggestion to the original poster off reflector....buy the
upgrade from M2 for this antenna. That way you don't have to deal with the
"broken donut" problem or any of the other mechanical problems inherent in
antenna. It is a good antenna but it does have flaws and these are addressed
the M2 upgrades.
