Building a VHF Ground Plane antenna for HAM Bands

edited January 1970 in Homebrewing
I recently built a Groundplane antenna for VHF HAM band.  I dont have a license yet, but i use it to monitor the band on RTL dongle and receive NOAA weather transmissions. I go a lot of help from VU2ASH to build this antenna. I used simple stuff to homebrew this antenna like a Copper plate used in Indian Pooja as a base and mounted a SO-239 / PL-259 connecter on it with main element on the connector and 4 radials slanting 45 degrees along the along the diameter of the plate.  Here are some pics:
