Antenna wire (from antenna into stereo) question

I put in a new CD player in my 914. The antenna wire was not lo0ng enough, so I am planning on making an extention. The antenna wire, under the outer plastic shielding is silver, wraped around a hollow plastic tube. Should I use this specific wire, or would plain copper 16 guage wire work?

I believe there should be a wire inside the plastic sheath. The silver around it is a RF shield. You may be able to get a screw on extension at Radio Shack.

A long time ago, in a far, far away galaxy........., uhh, local FLAPS & Radio Shack had a female/male plug extension that is push on.

In order for the antenna to work correctly, the antenna wire is shielded.
