Default Rx antena wire size?

Hello,
I have a futaba conquest Rx that I need to replace the antena on.
I know the length that It needs to be but I know what gauge it is becuase I have nothing to gauge a wire that small.Also would It be a wire that I could get at Radio Shack or is it a special type wire?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thankyou, Scott

The wire size doesn't matter from an RF standpoint but to resist breaking under vibration and constant flexing it needs to be standed soft copper with a high strand count. I don't think you will find suitable wire at radio shack. Try your LHS. If not, Dave at Radical RC (www.radicalrc.com) carries antenna wire.

JPMacG said it all. Most hobby shops carry replacement wire for antenna as well.
