You will have difficulty finding audible signals with a short piece of wire.
However, you should see some pickup of random signals on the screen that alter if the antenna is removed. With a working Softrock
you should find some signals from your computer that you do not really want to see!
I have never tried this but I think it should work.
If there in no difference then, assuming your wire is not connected to anything else try connecting it to your pin and touch places
like R25, 26, U9 pins 7, 9 and look for some sort of signals.
If you do see something go to various places in the BPF.
