Default Cirrus fm cr-217a receiver antenna wire length? how long

can someone tell me how long the receiver antenna on a Cirrus cr-217a 7 channel FM receiver should be? I have one that looks too short. whats the best way to add more wire ? do i just solder more on and heat shrink it? thanks

PS: it looks similar to a the futaba recievers.

Solder a new antenna wire to the Rx. 36" for 72Mhz. Get one from your LHS.

Do a Range Test, after.

Did the wire break or is it that you just think that it is too short ?
