dB vs dBi
I just recently found this page, and have signed up!
I don't know if anyone will read this page, but I hope that John Navas will.
I was reading the page about wireless on a boat, and saw what to me is an obvious error. It is the part where it suggests the difference between a 2 dBi antenna and an 8 dBi antenna is 6 dBi. That is not correct, the difference is 6 dB, not 6 dBi. My first reaction was that this error should be corrected. But then after some consideration, I wondered whether the error was intentional, as most readers will not be aware of the error, and may make more 'sense' to them as written.
Overall, I want to say what a great resource this site is. Thank you!

- Thanks for the kind words, Dave, and thanks for catching that mistake, which slipped past Jeff and me, and infected more than just that page. Please do keep making contributions like that.

I've been researching a software application and saw a rather detailed comment on it with your name and was wondering if it was you or not. If it is.. can you please continue with your explanation? I find it odd that with the amount of info you have and the amount of freeware currently available on the net, why someone would choose to spend what they do on an application such as this which if it is what's been stated about it from the author of the post...can be disproven as fraudulent.
I'd appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience.
