Are you looking for an easy, fun, and simple antenna project.  Then, this 2 Meter 1/4 Wave Ground Plane Antenna from Michael Martens (KB9VBR) is what you need.  The antenna design uses a SO-239 connector, some stiff wire, a few nuts and screws, and a convenient length of PVC pipe.  The radiating element is connected to the center pin of a coaxial feed line (50 ohm--RG-8, RG-8X, or even RG-58), with the radial wires attached to the coax shield.  The simple ground plane antenna makes a great portable or emergency antenna.  Make one today for your "go-kit".
