Strip off the last 1 or 2 inches of the rubber to expose the (copper?) wire inside. Try sticking that out a window to see if that helps at all and to rule out interference in your home.

I would cut about 5 feet of 16~ gauge speaker wire and completely replace that cable by soldering one end to the receiver and running the other end up the wall in a Y shape. Or you can try soldering it to the end of the existing cable (if you can't solder, just expose the copper wire about 1-2" and twist them together as good as you can).

Could also be that the stations you're listening to are > 90 miles away.
