Larry, the "RadioHamGuy", offers a simple, elegant, and functional way to establish reliable 2 meter communication from your home. Larry uses a surplus 5/8 wavelength magnetic mobile mount antenna, a fairly empty attic, and a few cables to make a "stealthy" 2 meter antenna for his garage ham radio shack. About the only thing I would add to this excellent arrangement is a "drip loop" for his coaxial feed line before it enters the roof vent. As antenna experimenter Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) points out, Larry's 2 meter antenna "can be used on 6 meters as a 1/4 wave antenna with a 1.3:1 SWR on the lower end of the band." So, using Larry's antenna set up, you can get two antennas for the price of one.
