Here are some comments from Wes:

Home Brew 2m J Pole antenna. Peel and stick some metal tape on a strap, cut out a J pole pattern. I will also show how to make the coax connection using a 3D printer guitar strap adjuster, this will also serve as the tuner. No Sewing, No special materials, Tunable to the perfect part of the band you are using. Can work on 70cm. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:466...
