Here's a fun antenna project that only takes about an hour and costs between $15-$20 to make.  KF7TOV does an excellent job of showing how to make a simple, cheap, and effective 2 meter yagi antenna with commonly available materials.  Radio Direction enthusiasts have used this type of antenna for years to participate in RDF "foxhunts" and to identify noise sources in neighborhoods.  This antenna is suitable for both home and field use.
