If you're a member of the ARRL, do a search for QHTenna on their 
webpage.  It's a simple turnstile antenna.  I have a pair and they're 
easily built.  Also, the K5OE page is archived in many places.  You can 
do a search for "Texas Potato Masher" and see what you get.  I'm going 
to try and build a pair of those (TPM2's) soon.

Good luck.
