From previous comments it sounds like your system is not like most (if a single wire for antenna connection). Most use coaxial cable. A simple splice of the inner conductor and outer shield would work to some degree for a broadcast receiver coax, it is not ideal. Most often special (coaxial) connectors are used but pretty good success can be had by making a "coaxial splice". Each end - Remove some jacket, push back braid shield, trim center shorter, strip center insulation a bit, solder inner conductors with minimum bump/size, wrap with quality elec tape (or better - teflon tape) to diameter of center insulator, pull both shield braids together over center, solder together, overall tape.
