If you're looking for some easy-to-build, inexpensive 2 meter amateur radio antennas, Don (N4UJW) of hamuniverse.com may have the answer for you in this well-written tutorial. 

Don discusses and illustrates some inexpensive 2 meter antennas that use commonly available materials from the nearest hardware store or home improvement outlet.  You probably have some spare connectors, stiff wire, and spare coaxial cable in your "junk box" to round out the project.

These simple 2 meter antennas don't require sophisticated matching or adjustments.  They are "stealthy", portable, and easy to erect and take down.  You may want to build one of these for your emergency "go kit" or for a standby antenna at your home or apartment.  Try out some of these designs and have some fun.
