If the device is on Murs frequencies then it is VHF. The frequencies it would run on is 151.820, 151.880, 151.940, 154.570, 154.600. To answer your question yes it probably would extend the range but you would need a really good antenna and a low loss cable. If you use a high db gain antenna the setup should do exactly what you want it to do.
