  Statement - you need to solder the ends of the dipoles because the loop in 
the end insulator and the wrapping of the wire back onto the antenna is a 
inductor and a capacitor...thus changing the resolate frequency of the dipole.

In our day and age it seems that Common Sense is in short supply.  If you don't 
have any Common Sense - get some and use it.  If you can't find any common 
sense, ask for help from somebody who has some common sense.
