However, our reviewing court has cautioned that “[m]erely stating that a particular [limitation] is a design choice does not make it obvious.”  Polaris Indus., Inc. v. Arctic Cat, Inc., 882 F.3d 1056, 1069 n.4 (Fed. Cir. 2018) (quoting Cutsforth, Inc. v. MotivePower, Inc., 636 F. App’x 575, 578 (Fed. Cir. 2016) (nonprecedential)).  Similarly, the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (“MPEP”) states that “[t]he mere fact that a worker in the art could rearrange the parts of the reference device to meet the terms of the claims on appeal is not by itself sufficient to support a finding of obviousness.”  MPEP § 2144.04 (quoting Ex parte Chicago Rawhide Mfg. Co., 223 USPQ 351, 353 (Bd. Pat. App. & Inter. 1984).  The Examiner must still provide a reason for one of ordinary skill in the art, “without the benefit of the appellant’s specification, to make the necessary changes in the reference device.”  Id.

Another alternative, however, is that the term “a” in “a housing” means “one or more.” See 01 Communique Lab., Inc. v. LogMeIn, Inc., 687 F.3d 1292, 1297 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (“As a general rule, the words ‘a’ or ‘an’ in a patent claim carry the meaning of ‘one or more.’”). Under this interpretation, the claim limitation at issue could be met by multiple RRHs, each in a separate enclosure. Indeed, Appellant’s Specification appears to disclose only that the RRHs are attached to a common support structure (i.e., a mounting pole) and to a common antenna or antenna enclosure, but not that the RRHs are located in a common housing. Spec. ¶ 36. Rather than a common housing as argued, the RRHs appear to be in separate enclosures. See Fig. 3.

First, we note that prior art that must be modified to meet the disputed claim limitation does not anticipate the claim. See, e.g., In re Chudik, 851 F.3d 1365, 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2017) (“Prior art that ‘must be distorted from its obvious design’ does not anticipate a new invention.” (quoting In re Wells, 53 F.2d 537, 539 (CCPA 1931))).
