The motor that extends/retracts the antenna is obviously 12v DC. So, the rotation can be reversed by changing the polarity of the input connections thereby causing the motor to extend or retract the antenna. However, what causes the polarity reversal as the radio is turned on/off? A relay perhaps? Where is it located?
Thanks, Ash
