I resuscitated some old broken parts, used some parts that have been shelved for a while.

Take the floppy wire antenna that comes with the crossfire, cut down to slightly larger length than needed, strip outside wires and cut to exact length. then i just used the bottom of a zip tie for rigitdy, and heat shrunk to hold it all together.
