If you want a simple, inexpensive, and high performance VHF antenna, then this easily-made 2-meter twin lead J-Pole Antenna from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) may be for you.

All you need are some simple tools, 54.75 inches/136.525 centimeters of 300 ohm television twin lead, a few connectors, and your 2-meter HT.  Kevin takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, and use phases of this handy portable antenna.  You can roll up the antenna and put it in your "Go-Kit" for portable or emergency use.

Kevin says his project is based on a design from WB3GCK (https://www.qsl.net/wb3gck/jpole.htm).
