The antenna you found is for television reception. It does not seem to be made for continuous use from 174 to 862 MHz by looking at the shape and the specifications. It also has a built in amplifier, which is ok but may cause problems in a large city with lots of transmitters.

These can be found on Ebay for very cheap prices and you would have to mount it so the elements are all vertical for use with a typical VHF/UHF receiver or scanner.

For that sort of frequency coverage, you might be better off with a log-periodic design. It'll have some directional properties, and will cover VHF and UHF.

The OP hasn't given his location, IMHO he's not in the US.

Exactly. Why don't you look at the ad the OP quoted?
