B-17G Tail Antennas

Recommended Posts

This is a very late war, H2X equipped B-17G.  It looks like the tail guns have been removed and two "L" shaped antennas mounted on the tail.  Any ideas what they're for, google has turned up nothing?

Aircraft serial (44-8588) brings up stories of the last mission of Klette's Wild Hares ending in shoot down over Pilsen in late 1944 but nothing regarding equipment.  Aircraft squadron code was used on at least two aircraft. I didn't see anything pertinent in 91st BG or 324th BS iinformation. No hits on b-17 tail radar or cheyenne tail turret.  Where's Jari? He can find anything.
