Is it really? I'd venture that back in the days, there were a fair number
of turnkey ops.
And these days, a lot of the building is spread out over more
disciplines. Lots of folks writing DSP code, for instance. Or building
microwave/2.4 GHz antennas.
It's true that there's fewer "tinkering with yagi" kinds of articles (or
manufacturers), but that might just be because Yagi technology (especially
with modern modeling tools) is fairly mature. Those self same tools
prevent someone from claiming that they have a miraculous new design with
10 dB more gain.
