If you need a simple, easily-made, 6 meter antenna for the ARRL Field Day, an upcoming ham adventure to a nearby park, or for home use, then this 6 meter 1/4 wave ground plane antenna from Paul Colton may your antenna of choice.
Paul does a nice overview of his homebrew 6 meter antenna, including a list of materials, construction tips, and helpful suggestion on tuning and using this basic antenna.
With the exception of the coaxial cable feed line, most of the antenna materials can be found at the nearest hardware store or home improvement outlet. Good luck on this project.
