Thanks for your reply, I was pretty sure that "passive" was not what Steve ment. The term that I have seen used for the concept Steve was referring to is "buffer" amplification and is also used for impedance control of the pre-amp input stage.

BTW, most antennas have some directivity. Even dipole antennas, prefer horizontal incidence,
