Although this excellent video focuses on UHF antennas for LRS and control of an FPV model, it contains most of the basic theory, design, and construction practices  needed to build an efficient UHF antenna for amateur radio use.  This video discusses three types of UHF antennas:

the 1/2 wavelength dipole.
the 1/4 wavelength monopole.
the 1/2 wavelength coil dipole.

The video is concise, well produced, and easily understandable with many helpful suggestions for the UHF antenna enthusiast.
