Haha! But of course what’s obvious to us is a complete mystery to 
others. Agree a little antenna theory would help, but most people could 
care less – as long as it works it’s good enough. My Mother can design 
and alter her own clothes but barely has a clue as to how to connect a 
DVD to her TV. I can sew a button (but not to her standards!) and 
baffled her when mirroring my laptop to her TV.

Off to trying to figure out what’s wrong with the Virtual Machine on my 
new computer, and the sooner I get that running the sooner I’ll be able 
to get on with the new Backend /1609 tuner project!
