The classic length for a single wire would be 1/4 wavelength (3.2cm) but as mentioned previously you may well find that this is not the length for maximum output and thus range.
Thank you!!

Will give a try

One more thing...wire sideways or pointed straight up? Or perhaps the more correct question is...Try to keep the antenna pointed at the rx or perpendicular to it?

Thanks
