Anyone knows why this aircraft doesn't have any wingtip antenna?

Thanks for your help!

Boeing in the late '80's started to offer an option on the 747's where the old style wing tip H.F antenna could be placed on the leading edge of the vertical stabilizer, hence the lack of H.F wing tip antennas on this Korean 747F. On a lot of the 747-300's and all 747-400's, the H.F antenna is now placed on the vertical stab.

Hope this answers your question.
