A Quick and Simple 2 Meter Ground Plane Project!
you are just getting experience in building antennas or you are an old
here is a simple and fun project! This antenna is perfect for those hams living in the primary coverage area of the repeater for 2 meter use.
This antenna is nothing more than the old standby "Droopy Groundplane" and can be used on any band where it's physical size does not pose a problem. Remember that the vertical radiator is 1/4 wavelength long at your operating frequency.
It has no gain but makes an excellent small antenna that can be mounted just about anywhere and with a little planning, can be used mobile on a short mast from the bumper!! Adding a small attachment loop at the tip of the radiator will enable it to be suspended from above for inside use.
Build it! (See drawing below)
element and radials can be made of #12 copper wire or welding rods, coat
hanger, etc. The vertical radiator (A) should be soldered to the center
connector of the SO239.
