Vertical Extended Double Zepp Antenna for 2 Metres (and more)

Thanks to Australian Radio Amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE) for this vertical extended double zepp antenna for the 2 meter band. The antenna also works well on the 6 meter band.

Peter says this "classic" but relatively unknown antenna can provide excellent simplex or repeater coverage.  Most of the materials for this antenna can be found at building supply outlets or at your nearest hardware store.

Here are a few comments from Peter (VK3YE):

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.
