    Default Aerial switch bulb required

    Hi
    Anyone know where I can obtain a new bulb for my electric aerial switch so it lights up again,
    It's very small and is soldered into the contacts of the switch, it's 15mm long and only 5mm across.

    I know I can just buy a new switch from super performance but not sure if they will look correct, would rather keep my original one.

    I stripped my electric aerial today and it's now working after taking old grease out of the motor and putting some new stuff in the there, and lightly oiled the mast, so I thought I would have a look at the switch next and change the Bulb, but it's blown.

    I've looked on Fleebay but couldn't find any.
    Anyone point me in the correct path

    I replaced similar looking bulbs in my 355's HVAC control panel with LEDs that have a built-in series resistor.

    Default Wire ended lamp

    I think the lamp you need is an L3206 which are on e-bay.
    Its hard to know what ma your lamp is but 80ma should light the switch.
    The ref T1 1/4 refers to shape and size T= tubular 1 1/4 = 4.2mm dia.

    also amazon

    hope that helps
