Not at all, My first and only antenna system consisted of a homebrew
tracking box with point to point wiring and an old pair of Orbit 360 TV
rotators topped with homebrew yagis with a modest amount of elements.
I'm trying to ressurect it now. My rig was to only semi expensive thing
I had. If you're trying to make me out to be some snob because I don't
think we used the right approach and should have challenged people's
technical prowess, then you're barking up the wrong tree.
