Default Homemade Uniden CB antenna replacement

I have a Uniden handheld CB that's missing an antenna and battery pack. The battery pack is not too big a deal because it also has a standard coaxial power receptacle.

The antenna is annoying. While it also has an RCA phono jack, using it is unwieldy.

Now it does have a 5/16" (~8mm) NEF thread (32TPI or ~0.8mm thread pitch) screw mount for an attached antenna. Anyone have ideas of what I could snag that would mesh with this, so it wouldn't be necessary to rethread it?

(Hmm... I just thought of something, the standard Schrader valve could possibly be the right threadding... might have to look into finding a dead one and gutting that.)
