Vertical extended double zepp for 2 metres FM

If you want more gain from a 2 meter antenna, why not try this vertical extended double zepp project from Australian amateur radio operator Peter Parker (VK3YE)?

The extended double zepp antenna consists of two, 5/8 waves in phase--in this instance--vertically polarized.

This antenna is great for simplex or repeater use.

Here are some general comments from Peter:

A very simple but very good omnidirectional vertical antenna for VHF FM simplex and repeaters. But that's not all. What is it? It's a extended double zepp antenna for 2m. And it does 6m as well. Watch to find out how easy one is to build.
