Thanks to Pityu Nagy for this fascinating video on how to make a 5/8 J-pole antenna for 145 MHz.  Pityu was able to use some copper tubing, a steel wire from an old CB antenna, and a homemade coil to make this efficient and simple 2 meter antenna.  This would make an excellent emergency 2 meter antenna for your club or home station.
