Early S2F Wire Antenna Arrangement

This is a late-production S2F-1 with the parrot-beak rear nacelle (see: http://tailspintopics.blogspot.com/2010/08/stoof.html)

Note that you need to distinguish the antenna wires from the shadows that they cast. This may help:
 (Click on it for an enlarged picture.)

Note that the upper fin antenna joins to the left stabilizer antenna and there is a tensioning wire between the joint and the fuselage.

The configuration of the wires changed notably during S2F-1 development and was different for early production but I feel pretty sure that this is the late S2F-1 production configuration (BuNo 136XXX).

More later.
