The receiver has to much noise.

Try another frequency - like wide band FM (broadcast FM) - your antenna
cable should be able to pick up WFM.

And try using a USB cable and move the dongle away from the computer and
put a huge of metal under the antenna - maybe the antenna just has a bad
grounding plane.

I'm assuming the antenna is a quarter wave antenna which typically comes
with the usb rtl dongle.

Or maybe the antenna is bad - the dongle appears to be working.
