Helix antenna articles have also been published in the AMSAT Journal over
the past decade:

AMSAT Journal, May/June 2008 - "Helix Antenna Mathematics and Construction
Techniques", John Henderson, N4NAB

AMSAT Journal, September/October 2008 - "A 52 Turn Helix Antenna for S-Band
that Overperforms", Clare Fowler, VE3NPC (shows useful details on
construction tips although the dimensions obviously differ for 2 meter band)

AMSAT Journal, May/June 2011 - "Confessions of a Helix Junkie", Mike
Williams, K9QHO

If you don't have the printed copies they were in the AMSAT Journal Archive
DVD which appears to be out of stock in the AMSAT Store at the moment.
