Yes.   It made me dizzy.

We are talking about chromium-plating over brass.  However, the "lossy 
plating" (chromium) is a substantively Better Conductor than brass.

Solid conductance at VHF?   ....... Uh oh.   There's that dizzy feeling 
again--which is certainly not good news on a slippery slope.
