Electric Aerial Fuse Location?

Hi all
 
Sounds a daft question - but I'm new to 911s.... This one is 1981 SC UK
 
I've stupidly blown the fuse for the permanent 12v to the aerial and for the life of me can't locate it. It isn't documented anywhere in owners manual or seem to be identified in main fuse panel in front trunk.
 
Everything else seems to work OK.  Is it in-line and hidden somewhere?
 
 
Thanks for any help
Neil

    Mine was a separate in-line fuse - I found it close to where the relevant cables exited the luggage compartment through to the right front inner wing.

    Thanks DIJ
    I'll have to trace mine a bit further, didn't initially notice in-line fuse by the the inner wing or further along behind the instruments. Mine must be closer to the radio. Could have sworn I heard a fuse pop near the main fuse box - all look OK and measure ok in situ.
     
     
    Thanks

    Thanks DIJ
     
    found fuse in-line, at rear of radio unit. All OK now 😀
     
    I'm still getting used to this classic car thing - was looking through main fuse box for it! Makes sense with such an old car it was placed at the rear of the radio  😀
     
     
    Many thanks
