H'mmm, that's a pretty broad statement.
How about people who don't have antenna analyzers? Don't put up antennas?
I been putting antenns up for over 50 years and only had an analyzer for the
last 2 years. For the first 25 years didn't even have a SWR bridge.
Somehow they seemed to work. Had to tweak them a time or 2 to get them to
work. Built beams, quads, phased verticals, etc. 73
