I am new to ham radio and would like your assistance/recommendation on something; I work in a building that is ALL metal and would like to know what you would do for an antenna, would like something I could put in side if possible, would you have any suggestions??

FT60R 2m HT is what I will be using.

Thanks for your Help!!!!!

I'd try making a simple dipole antenna and taping it to a window. You won't do too well if you're not adjacent to a window. A simple rubber ducky on an HT would probably do something for you if you're near a window, but your results might not be great. I'm assuming you can't rig an outside antenna somehow? A mobile-type antenna mounted on a railing, gutter, or whatever should work better than any inside antenna.
