Here's part 2 of the "Hourglass Antenna" from "Radiopreppers.com." The antenna is based on a design by John Stanley (K4ERO) and can be used successfully on 2 meter Single Sideband and CW.
According to the "Radiopreppers.com" website, this horizontally polarized VHF antenna can also be used on VHF digital modes. The antenna has approximately 5 dB gain (nearly as much as a 2 meter Moxon Antenna), is almost omni-directional, and is easily portable. The antenna shows a 50 ohm impedance and can be fed with a good quality coaxial cable.
