I have asked for and received help from your members a couple of times during the last year. I am sending this to you in an effort to “give something back” to your members.
I managed to stupidly break the built-in whip antenna on my Sony 7600GR and looked for a replacement. Several are on eBay for 5- 60 dollars which is a bit steep.
I eventually tried one (for $20) in the link below from eBay:
It arrived very quickly (under 2 weeks from China) and it simply went into the radio with no problems and it works very well.
I am not a radio HAM or electronics expert so it may not be perfect but to me the reception is at least as good as the original.
If anyone needs one, it would be well worth trying.

Thanks so much for sharing this useful tip, Frank!
