Hi Vincenzo,

Can I make a suggestion ?

Instead of looking for replacement lamps for it, replace them with LEDs. 
I had an old Kenwood 2m FM rig that had a similar problem and replaced 
them with nice green LEDs.

The bulbs in my azel rotator controllers failed to and I replaced them 
with strings of red LED's, looks very nice :)

You will find LED's of many sizes and light output these days so it 
wouldn't be too hard to find one to suit.

You can mount them in small rubber grommets or use a small dab of 
silicone sealant to secure them in place.
