threadlike antenna / filiform antenna
Explanation:
Hopefully, it is English you are looking for. My Ernst Wörterbuch der industriellen Technik ENG>GER gives filiform as fadenförmig. So, if it is a threadlike antenna then filiform antenna might work here. Normally, 'filiform antenna' has a botanical application. See for example, Larousse Dictionary of Science and Technology: filiform (Bot, Zool) Threadlike, eg. filiform antenna.
However, I can't find a webpage with filiform antenna connected with electronics but for 'threadlike antenna' connected with radio transmitters, see the link below.
