A 2 meter dipole antenna can be made with a scrap of blank PCB material. Carve a channel to separate the two halves of the PCB and drill a hole through one side, large enough to pass a piece of coax. Pass the coax through the hole and solder the braid to that side, and then carefully attach the center conductor to the other side. Take two pieces of 12-14ga wire cut to 19.25" long and solder one on each side. Mount the antenna to the side of a capsule. I cover the antenna in duct tape to give it plenty of mechanical stability.
