I'm looking for a little help as I've recently come across a set of Atari Wireless controllers with the receiver.  Everything works, however my antenna has been broken in half at some point, and I'm missing the top half.  I'm hoping someone can do me a favor and measure the length of an original antenna as collapsed AND extended fully as this will help me find a replacement.  Thanks in advance!

Its about 4.25 inch collapsed and 18 inch extended. Thats from the tip to the bottom of elbow when bent at 90 degrees. Like in your picture.

Perfect, thank you so much. Now the hunt is on to find a suitable replacement.  I'll be sure to post if/where/when I find one for future reference.
