Default RX antenna replacement

How difficult is it to replace a rx antenna; I read that you should leave one inch of the old antenna attached to the receiver; why would that be? Thanks for any advice. Jack

If your wire is broken, you can splice it. Make it about 39 " long.

You can also solder a new one to the PC board. I never heard anyone say to leave an inch of the original, sounds silly, suppose you tear it out of the receiver,??

If you are talking about Putting a Deans antenna on it, then Deans recommends leaving about 6" of the original.
