Default Ends to antenna broke (Aftermarket Viper system)

The little cone things on the end of my antenna broke. You can see the cone things on the ends that I'm talking about in the picture below:



Now there is just bare copper looking wire exposed. Is there any harm in leaving it as is? Would I gain range by buying a new antenna?

I would suggest covering with some shrink tubing to create a cap.

You also might be able to find a small rubber tube cap that would fit; similar to caps on brake bleeder.

good luck
