Antennas are a certain length to match a certain wavelength. While there is a slight chance that it could be the right length for your VHF, it seems unlikely.
This frequency specific length is the reason that antenna tuners exist. You can either have an antenna for each wavelength or you can have a tuner for your shortwave radio whether it's an SSB
or HAM. They operate on a much wider range of frequencies than a VHF which only uses a small range so it only needs an antenna of one length.
