An Introduction to Antenna Modeling
By Steve Nichols, G0KYA
The author provides a step-by-step guide on how to input antennas designs into provided MMANA-GAL program, how to adapt designs you are given and how to optimize your designs for the best performance. By the time you have finished you should be able to model a whole host of antennas including dipoles, the G5RV, the W3DZZ trapped dipole, verticals, off-center fed dipoles (OCFD), magnetic loop antennas and many more. Computerized antenna modeling for many radio amateurs looks like a black art - needing expensive programs that look like you need a degree in astrophysics to get them to work. This book dispels that provides a straightforward way to design antennas with predictable results.
This book includes a CD with the MMANA-GAL software so you can get started immediately. But wait --- there's more! You also get sample antenna files and other antenna modeling software including EZNEC, MININEC Pro and 4nec2. Over 30 other amateur radio computer programs are included.
