'Cheap' is kind of relative... Do you have a dollar cap?

If you want to buy, for < $150 get an Arrow and assorted goodies:


Roughly the same Price for an Elk Log periodic, if you're into that sort of


If you want to build, cheap Yagi for AMSAT:

I can't really in good conscience recommend anything else. Any option
listed will suit you well.
