Don't cut the bracket. Sit back and work out a way round it. maybe you might like to post some photos.

If you want to swap it for one with a built in antenna I have one.

Decided not to cut the wire, instead, I will cut a slot from the start of the threaded section down to the hole. This will allow the wire to be layed into the bracket. Problem solved...... I hope? Sorry Biggles but I have already fitted the unit, just the aerial to do.
