Make sure you understand things like antenna theory, wavelength, frequency, and how to correctly size an antenna. Find things like the fractional wave and how long the antenna needs to be. Simply making it 'bigger' can actually impede performance and range.

Is that an FM Modulator for an MP3 Player? If So, they don't work great in large cities. I have one for my Zen Vision and its great until I get to San Diego or LA. Every frequency gets overtaken by some local station. An AUX port is the way to go. Direct line and best Sound Quality you'll get out of a player in the car.

I'd use this prio list:

AUX In
Cassette Adapter
FM Injector
FM Modulator
