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.

Is there a way to boost a fm radio antenna?
I bought this FM radio clock:
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?
