Is there a way to boost a fm radio antenna?

I bought this FM radio clock:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Mirr...75954c4d9hfxdz

but the radio signal is too weak, on 80 % of radio stations I hear crackling. Is there a way to boost a fm radio antenna? I think that at least 20% boost would solve crackling problem....


I was told that I should try to extend radio antenna cable with some metal wire if I understood correctly? ???? I need to cut those rubber layer skin on antenna and that connect that to metal extender?
