Default replacing an antenae on spektrum reciever

I bought a spektrum system 2nd hand a while ago with a couple recievers and finally got around to using one of the spare recievers. I guess at some point somebody made an attempt to replace the antenae on the reciever and didn't do it right. The board has some burn marks on it and the wire is basically just sitting in the hole. Does anybody have a picture of where the wire is supposed to be soldered to on the board?

I have found it best to send it back to Horizon for repair or replacement. I've had to do this 3 times in the past.

I consider myself pretty good with a soldering iron and haven't been able to properly fix one yet. I'd rather be out a few dollars for a repair than to potentially damage one of my cars when I loose control.
