Default Broken antenna Question

We had a big ice storm here lately and as the ice melted it tore the antenna off the top of my trunk lid. I found the antenna laying on the ground when i went out to my car. My question is can i splice the antenna back together, is it anything special or is it just like speaker wire?

You are best just replacing it with a new one. It can be spliced, but usually it's not worth the trouble.

I repaired my XM antenna cable and it worked pretty good for a while but I bought a replacement on Ebay cheap enough and use the patched up one for a back up . I use it on heavy equipment so they get abused alot .
