And as for a good sturdy corrosion free PVC enclosed 2m/.70m ant, try 400 ohm
ladder line fed with coax and sealed in PVC pipe for a weather tight radome
enclosed version of the great J-pole.  Both of mine TX and RX very well on 
bands with a reasonably wide center cut VSWR of about 1.2:1  Good luck.
