Here are some general comments from Michael about this antenna: "Are you looking for a fun and easy antenna project? The 1/4 ground plane might be just the ticket. This particular ground plane is constructed out of an SO-239 chassis connector, so the radiator is attached to the center conductor of the connector and the radials each come off the base.

Are you looking for an easily assembled, simple, and inexpensive 2 meter ground plane antenna?  Then this antenna idea from Michael Martins (KB9VBR) could be your answer. This 1/4 wavelength ground plane antenna is made from a length of PVC pipe, a SO-239 chassis connector, and enough wire to create the vertical radiating element and the above-ground counterpoise system.
