There's a good chance that the "Magic Band" (Six Meters) will be active during the 2nd weekend of June as VHF enthusiasts take to the air in the North American VHF Contest. 

To get you prepared for that event and the upcoming ARRL Field Day, you may want to consider building this simple 6 meter dipole antenna from readily available parts.  KA5D shows you his simple antenna that is suitable for both home and field use.  Each element is 132 cm/51.96 inches and is tuned for 50.125 MHz USB.
