Easy Helical Copper Tape and PVC 2m Vertical Antenna

Here's how to quickly build from hardware-store copper tape and PVC pipe a tiny 18 in. continuously loaded lightweight portable or base station 2m omni-directional vertical antenna with performance and efficiency comparable to a 5 ft. J-pole. Cost: roughly $10. It's an easy afternoon's homebrew project, ideal for the new ham but equal to the serious hams' needs. It is great for events like bike-a-thons. It also makes an excellent ham radio club hands-on build-it meeting project. Further, it adapts well to other bands.
