Soldering an external "Passive Antenna" to PyTrack?!?

I was wondering if someone has soldered an external "Passive Antenna" to their PyTrack? ... to add some extra sensitivity gain?
I'm asking, before I go and ruin one ... to see if it'll work or not ... if there are some that have modified their PyTrack in this way :-)
And for those that are wondering why? ... Simple ... The Internal GPS antenna is not good enough! ... wish they had added an external uFL External-GPS connector ... so we could hook up a more sensative/better antenna .. then the tiny one they added to the board ...
And One has tre options:
A) Buy an external gps-module, and hook it up to the Pins via i2C or UART ...
B) Go Crazy, and try to solder an antenna to it ... and see if that'l do the trick (since the L76-L gps-chip is a a good one mind you ... just the antenna that .... sucks ...)
C) Choose a different development board ...
