Default RE: broken antena

The guage of the wire should be 22-24. I would recommend using stock JR wire , it is part number JRPA170. Feel free to send the receiver in to have the antenna replaced, generally our service center will replace the antenna at no charge provided there is nothing wrong with the receiver.

Splicing on the old antenna wire can work, but it adds a risk of breaking the antenna easily due to vibration. It is best to replace the whole antenna.
