Don't buy it.

I wouldn't use any active antenna (i.e. any antenna that needs to be
powered) in this part of the country. There are too many transmitters
spaced too closely for active antennas to be useful.

Put up a Yagi rooftop antenna; that's your best bet. On FM, height is
might; the higher you can get it, the better it will work.
