I have also read reviews where us common-folk have had difficulty 
assembling. I will admit to occasionally being in that group but can 
sometimes blame on ‘cartoon instructions’: drawings instead of written 
words. ...It would be funny-ha-ha if my reception problems were do to 
improper antenna assembly! (I have done some testing which by-passed or 
or would other wise verify is correct.)

In the theoretical world there is no signal deterioration; in the real 
world all sorts of signal loss. I was reminded of and learned a lot more 
about it when researching on-line not so much why I was having reception 
problems but how to correct or at least work-around.

I tend to agree with your statement of “it’s not half the country is 
stupid but lacking education”. I’ll admit to barely having a clue as to 
what’s going on under the hood of my car but I do know basic 
electricity/electronics. I do call on someone else to diagnose and 
repair my car.
