[amsat-bb] Antenna resurrection

I recently picked up the Cushcraft Satellite pair: the 738XB and 22XB.
These are circular antennas with a switch unit to change polarity. Well,
they turned out to not be quite what was described. The switches on both
antennas appear to be bad. I managed to remove the 2 meter unit and
seperated the relay. The coil is burnt out. The PC board seems to be
intact with little if any damage. Haven't had the courage to attack the
70cm on yet.
Any source for the relay for this pair? Maybe original parts source for
relays and the phasing harnesses. I would like to get some use out of
this if it is possible.
Thanks for your insight.
