Is this the upper antenna clip you need?

This only came with the Blaupunkt antenna #7 691 210 031. Might be available separately...but doubtful.

I tried my skill at photo editing, which obviously needs improvement, but the dimensions shown should help you to fabricate something that looks better than a screw and ziptie. Be sure the mast is not grounded to the A-pillar.

And if you have a sunroof car, make sure the attaching screw is short (per the picture) so you don't perforate the front drain hoses for the sunroof water channel.  

 

I seem to recall that old Honda Civics used a similar upper attachment bracket; might be worth checking into.

I'm sure you could improvise or 3d print something if you're not particular.

 

In my case, I had a NOS antenna but it came with a later style clip.  I ended up buying a cheap, trash antenna for an old style clip. I soaked the clip in Evaporust then had the screw part zinc plated with some other items I was sending out.  Turned out really nice.

When my "Earlier" style clip broke, JB weld alone was not strong enough.  So I drilled both halves and fitted part of a wire brad for reinforcement set in JB weld.  It's been at least 5 years and holding.

I feel like this is concourse judge territory. Looking in my own garage, I see I have one of each: the Blaupunkt style described by John (what is that logo though?) and the Hirschmann style ID’d  by Shawn.  I am going to dub that the “chess pawn” style, insuring higher prices on EBay, because of course any part with a catchy name commands a higher price on EBay.

But why would a clip break? There is nothing structural about them. 

Things get hooked on the antenna even when fully retracted.

Electric cord for overhead trouble lights.

Car covers.

I rolled the car forward and closed my fingers around the a-pillar carelessly pulled a bit and POP, but mine was a ring mount zip tie. 


Looking all around and haven't found any small replacement parts like them, only the clips in antenna kits.

Off the concourse, this might be a better way:

Universal-Auto-Car-Stereo-Hidden-Internal-Amplified-Aerial-Antenna-AM-FM-Radio

 

Seems to work on the dashboard in front of the seatbelt warning pod, at least in the garage.  An amplified AM/FM antenna (power wire not shown in the image).  Available from the orient via all the popular online methods, less $ than a tube of jbweld
