Upgrade radio aerial

I've fitted a Nakamichi CD500 in place of the standard Becker radio in my car. The improvement is very noticable, especially on CDs, but the FM radio seems more sensitive to signal strength and will cut out momentarilly in poor signal areas (when I assume it starts hunting for a stronger carrier). Can someone fill me in on the boxster stock aerial setup, where it's located (obviously it's not a conventional mast type) and point me in the direction of an upgrade or booster?

It is a wire inside the windshield. There is also a booster in the right A-pillar.

I can't help you out with how to fix it, but I can confirm that the radio reception sucks w/ my Pioneer deck... Same problems you have.

I just use MP3 CDs
No longer a Porsche owner.
