What is the long object that points aft on the trailing edge of the wingtips on 747-200's? Big static wick?

It's the curb feeler

Or is it the HF antenna? I always get those confused.

jeezus...I should have known better than to expect a real answer! :D Since HF antenna is the most serious answer, I'm going to go with that...maybe, if it's confirmed...
