Do you need a cheap, easily assembled, mostly "stealthy", and completely portable 2 meter antenna?
If you do, then this article from Don (N4UJM) is worth reading.

In his post, Don describes 3 simple 2 meter antennas that can be made from locally available materials:

The ultra simple "wire" version that can be suspended from a convenient support.  This antenna can be used indoors or outdoors.

A table top 2 meter antenna using a dowel or other simple, weighted support.

And a simple beam or yagi antenna incorporating the above designs. 

Don also offers some construction and operating tips for these antennas.
