It's interesting how right through the Leander build program different HF/DF antenas were used on top of the formast, even these later two ships carry different systems. Cone type UA-13 on Apollo and possibly FH4 on Diomede. Strange how they did not adopt one system in the later years. Seawolf conversions recieved much updated UAA-1 system as found on 22's and 23's
