If you need a simple, inexpensive 2 meter antenna with significant gain over a dipole, then please consider this project from Chuck (KK6SUY).
The antenna is based on a "QST" article published in April 1993.
Just follow the suggestions contained in this post and you will soon have an antenna just as good as some commercial products.

Here are some comments from Chuck (KK6SUY):
In this video I show a article from QST magazine that is from April 1993 on how to build a 2 meter Yagi for 7 bucks. With inflation you might actually be able to build it for the price of a Fast Food Meal Lol. article; http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Techno...As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
