For the military aircraft people on my list...

... can anyone tell me what those little oddly-bent things sticking up from the front of a Kiowa Warrior (OH-58D) rotorcraft are? They look, in the pictures I have, like tubes or pylons that have the tips bent over, right above the cockpit, and none of the diagrams I have tells me what the heck they are.

EDIT: Answered! They're the secondary FM antennae, with a wire-strike cutter between them.
