If I was an avid hf contester (I am not) and I thought 1 dB would make the  
difference between running and winning, and I had some extra $$ to blow, I 
would  easily pay $1000 for a dB.

But that's YOUR perspective. It's valid for YOU, but many of us  in 
the hobby have a different one. 

I have a perspective somewhat  like yours with respect to my home 
music system. It's adequate. When I  have money to spend, I use it to 
buy Lester Young records, not to improve  the stereo. 

The whole point of my post that began this discussion was  to provide 
INFORMATION to those who care. I get a lot of enjoyment out of  
making my antenna system better, learning more about how things work  
as I do, and sharing what I learn with those who care. That's MY  
perspective. :)
