If you're handy with a few common tools and willing to experiment with surplus electronic parts, then this homebrewed VHF UHF antenna from "SurvivalComms" may interest you.
This antenna project is cheap and uses locally available materials.
According to "SurvivalComms", the antenna design, building, and testing were fairly easy. Readily available parts made the project simple and easy:
"Re-purposing / re-banding a cellular/PCS antenna into a dual band VHF UHF antenna. Items used are items from the "dollar box" at a hamfest tailgate and everyday hardware. Electronic surplus can be your friend !"
