It's true that antenna hardware costs a lot more now than it did 20 or
30 years ago however in general, the investment in an antenna pays
dividends for decades to come.

I frequency see hams blow thousands of dollars on super expensive
plastic radios, then put up a relatively cheap dipole or crappy "no
radials needed" vertical.

It's better to put up the best antenna you can possibly afford and
ditto for the receiver, pay for quality as much as possible then cheap
out in the rig if you have to.
