Ouch...

Too long and drawn out for something so simple. Let me save you the time... get an alligator clip, crimp it to 4-5' wire, clip the clip to the existing antenna, extend the wire, hang on the wall.

We don't know how to mind our own business

Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost

While attending an amatuer radio operators class,

we attached our lead antenae wire to a metal shopping cart,
(quad antenae) and in another demonstraton, to a metal chair, and did duplex (two way) transmissions.

If you can, stretch out a wire 36 feet long, and you'll get as far away and antartica. Called a "long wire" antenae.(again, amateur radio bands).

And provide a proper "ground" for your radio.

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”
