This is post 2649 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.
Thanks to Daniel Divine for this intriguing 2 meter antenna idea.
Radio amateurs living in deed-restricted housing (HOA/CC&&Rs), should be able to modify this design for home use.
Here are some comments from Daniel:
Living in an antenna restricted apartment can be very frustrating to a ham. And in my case hanging anything out of a window or having coax running outside is not even allowed. So with time on my hands I came up with this simple 2 meter groundplane design to get you on the air in 20 minutes or less. Also I believe this would make a great antenna in an emergency situation when there's no antenna to be found and very little to work with. This antenna has proved to be very effective and I hope it helps to get someone on the air. 73'
