I’ve tried dozens of different things for antennas on micro armor. Some are too stiff and end up poking fingers, some are too soft and break off, some are too thick and look silly. I think I’ve found the perfect material.
This is a wire for stringing beads, it’s a very thin steel 7 strand wire that is coated with a very thin plastic coating on the outside. The overall diameter is .012″ inches, it’s stiff yet flexible and will not break. A 75′ (23 meter) roll should last a lifetime.
This stuff is tough enough that I can pick up my vehicles by the antenna without worry.
I picked mine up at the local Michaels arts and craft store. Here is a photo with all the info you will need, including one of those cool scan codes that you can scan with your mobile phone if you have the groovy app.

Here is what the wire looks like if you strip off some of the plastic coating.
