If you need an ultra simple and cheap 2 meter antenna, then this "Slim Jim" project from Kevin Loughin (KB9RLW) is just for you.  All you need are some basic tools and a length of 450 ohm ladder line. The antenna is perfect for portable or emergency field use. Here are some general comments from Kevin: Details on the slim jim I just made to use outside on my RV. Super easy to make, performs well.
