No, you need to (a) get PATS disabled in the tune, or (b) replace the damaged antenna--option (b) is probably the easiest of the two, any PATS "C" antenna from a junkyard will work. Plan (a) will require removing the PCM and sending it to someone that can disable the PATS, or find someone to come to your house and do the same.
Curious, how did it get "broke"?

Engineering is, at its base, making what you want from what you have.
At its extreme it is making what you want from what you can get.
