Who are these guys? Is it actually just one guy? When's the last time you saw a telecommunications engineer use lol? Four times in one post?

I did enjoy the Freudian slip of "Hooverman." Like, in his opinion, it sucks?

I'd like some info regarding "designed for 300 ohms." If these antennas are designed for 300 ohms, but we use 75 ohm cable, why aren't they simply designed for 75 ohms? I think the answer to that is that the antennas aren't actually designed for 300 ohms, but instead they are designed with dimensions that pick up signals, and they HAPPEN to be about 300 300 ohm cable is used. Any telecommunications engineer type comments?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
