Quite true.  I'd estimate that being able to (1) move the antenna in all 3
dimensions, and (2) compensate (manually) in real time for any fades gives me a
several dB advantage over those who can't hold their antennas in their hands.
:-)  In fact, I've dropped plans for CP antennas, as I can manually adjust
polarisation well enough in real time (UO-14 only shows slow polarisation
shifts with a LP antenna).
