Hi, many TV antennas can be used for FM. The FM band is between VHF (not UHF or HD) broadcast channels 6 and 7 and it was easier to make the antennas wide band and thus cover the FM range as well. Some even had additional elements to fill in the range better as really channel 6 was way lower in frequency than 7. If you can find one, a true FM antenna is better. It will be narrower in band width and thus eliminate many of the TV signals that might interfere with FM reception. I am sure there must be sources for them still, but certainly not as common as in years ago. I guess in the long run it depends on how good your receiver is, how far away the stations are, the ability to mount an external antenna and your budget.

Good Listening
Bruce
