No one is complaining about that. Some are dubious as to the value of the 'technology', but specifically this embodiment. Anyone familiar with invention would describe this as 'obvious to anyone skilled in the art'. We know how to do arrays ( some RDF arrays look just like this BTW), we know salt water antennas are antennas. Therefore.... Even if the concession of 'new'ness is addressed, the real issue is: what is the VALUE? What problem does it solve? Why is this a better solution than others? What new avenues of approach does it open up? BTW...your CALLSIGN is....?
