Believe this is the style wrench Packard used only theirs was a fixed width, not the adjustable type. This wrench is an Amazon offering for around $25. A little expensive for a one purpose job but cheaper imports should be available.

If the nut has not corroded to the antenna, some have had success by wrapping several layers of tape over the nut to protect the chrome and then use channel locks. That might be an option to consider.

EDIT: McMaster-Carr has the fixed type in various diameter circle sizes -- $10 or so for those around 1".
