Is there any way to increase the radio reception i get with my aftermarket headunit?

if anyone has installed an aftermarket headunit, there is a very small "L" shaped plug that does not go back into any aftermarket unit. that plyg goes to the antenna booster i assume. Is there any way 2 get a better radio signal, cuz right now mine absolutely sux.

what year is your car? If its pre-2002, you need a new antenna amplifier:
