You know, there is another component to this discussion.   Let's suppose 
you have .1 to .5dB loss in an RF system.   During transmission or 
reception, will that really mean anything?  I'm not sure I would "hear" 
that, or see that on an "S" meter.  The transfer of power in RF systems 
can be a complicated science, and yes, ever connector and cable add 
up.   Personally, I would worry more about line loss, and antenna 
efficiency, than .3dB in a connector.
