Thanks to Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) for this simple, inexpensive 3-element yagi antenna for the 2 meter band.

This antenna is perfect for portable or field use.

Here are some comment from Peter:

A simple tape measure yagi for 2 metres (144 MHz). With a gain of approx 7dBd it is the equivalent of multiplying your transmit output power by 5 compared to a half wave dipole. I test it receiving 2m FM, a 2m CW beacon and signals from the AO91 satellite. Nothing original about my construction.
