This is post 2502 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Thanks to Michael Martens (KB9VBR) for this ultra simple, inexpensive, and effective antenna for the 2 meter Amateur Radio Band.

Most of the materials for this afternoon project can be found locally.

Here are some general comments from Michael:

Are you looking for a fun and easy antenna project? The 1/4 ground plane might be just the ticket. This particular ground plane is constructed out of an SO-239 chassis connector, so the radiator is attached to the center conductor of the connector and the radials each come off the base.
