Old garage door opener....antenna??

What part or parts on this board compose the antenna system? I want to somehow increase the receiving capacity so the garage door will open. One of my cars auto opener will not penetrate my new garage door with a strong enough signal to open the door. The opener is an old Sears model and I don't see any antenna on the drive unit itself so I assume that the antenna is part of this wall unit which is not close to the "big door".

The antenna is marked ANT. For best results adjust the antenna length in one foot multiples.
