1979 International TV antenna wall plug


I busted the plug that plugs into the antenna jack which is connected to the built in antenna on my rig. It is white plastic about 1/2" in width and has two pieces which screw together.

Is this a standard plug of any kind that I can go out and buy new?

Is the jack actually two small holes in the plate? If so, it sounds like the very old style 300 ohm connector that is in my 1977 Argosy. I tried to find a new plug and had no luck. I ended up buying a 75 ohm pass through connector, drilling a new hole in the plate to insert the pass-through and then I connected the antenna wire to a 300 ohm to 75 ohm convertered and plugged into the inside side of the pass through. You can then plug a normal 75 ohm TV cable to the outside of the pass-through. It seems to work.
