If you need a simple, inexpensive, and highly portable antenna for the amateur radio 6 meter band, then this homebrew ground plane antenna from Peter Parker (VK3YE) may be what you're looking for.

The radiating element and the attached radials are both a quarter wavelength long for 6 meters.  Ground radial wires are medium thickness copper wire and are sloped at a 45-degree angle coming off the mounting plate.  The antenna can be scaled for 10 meters, 2 meters, and 70 cm.

This is a basic, no-frills antenna that will serve you well in both portable and emergency situations.
