That TV antenna has too many elements out of band for FM radio, it would perform absolutely horrible.
You want something about 1/2 wavelength of the FM band, which would be just under 5 feet. Without knowing your situation as far as where you need to install it goes, or your location, there is little else I can advise.
Get one that is dedicated to FM radio, not a multi-purpose unit. Maybe try this?
That Wineguard yagi is listed as out of stock...
What does the FM band cover in Australia? I know that we in the US use 88-108 Mhz, but in much of the rest of the world, I believe it's 76-90 Mhz. Unless it says that it specifically goes down to 76 Mhz in coverage, be careful to keep that in mind. I don't know that the yagi listed goes down that low.
Which will work OK, but not quite as well as a properly tuned antenna, assuming my guess about Aus FM frequencies is correct.It is 87.5 to 108 MHz here.

He posted their FM Band is 87.5 to 108 in case you missed it.Again, this antenna is likely tuned for the US, not Australian, market. It would work OK going out of band, but certainly not as good as one tuned for the Australian FM band...Mike
