I just noticed that one of the two Antennas had been ripped off the receiver. How might I re-attach it? Can I solder it or should I replace the receiver? Mind you, it's only $13 so replacement is fine if that is better.

They snap right back on as long as the ipex connector is in tact. It happened to me a lot before I was as good at securing them, so I bought these replacements:

Really glad I did too :)

It literally ripped out. So it's separated from the connector... The replacements you suggested might work though.... Thanks!

They're compatible for sure, but you'll find they're almost twice as long as the originals, I should warn you... It's been fine for me, but it bugs some of the guys with the 3" and smaller builds

I actually received and installed them today; they worked great! Again, thank you.

And thanks for the heads-up about the length but in my case, It doesn't matter - in fact, that is helpful for my situation.

When you order the replacements MAKE SURE you het the smaller version of the connector style, if not the others will swim in there and be no good as they will not work. You can get 10 for like 9.00 on ebay
