    For those with an ARRL subscription to QST, my paper copy of April’s issue came in the mail today and I saw a neat 2 page article on how to make a cheap 2 meter antenna using a pair of 16″ coat hangers, a PVC pipe for the antenna mast, coax of course, and some minimal hardware.

    For those without a QST sub, here’s a direct link to the author’s own website article (some other interesting articles on that website as well):

    I hope to take some time this Spring-Summer to try out one or more low cost antenna builds like this one, once I’ve picked up a SWR meter. Currently shopping for one of those, so suggestions are welcome.

    Anyone have any other designs or experiences on 2 meter antenna builds to share?
