I use a home made "J" pole on the back of the house for 2-mtrs, and a NGP (No Ground Plane) "Spike" for 70cm. Alas, it is not well and needs to be rebuilt.
The rebuilt will very likely be a quarter wave with a ground plane added.
But I got to get a "Round Tuit" first.
NO - his last sentence asks about HF antenna....sheesh!
I've opted to not put anything on the rig, HF wise...I have a 9' collapsable whip mounted on a piece of PVC that can be disassembled, two 33' radial wires and a homebrew Pi Tuner that I use. Put the antenna up alongside the picnic table or strap it to something and I'm on the air. Bring along a K1 with the four band 40/30/20/15 module. I save the 160/80 meter module for the winter back at home...Hi Hi
