I am a newcomer to the list.
I am still trying to become "aufait" with EZNEC, but I have some difficulty
with Rx antennas' in that the gain quoted is in dBi. Whilst this is easy to
understand for Tx antennas, it is only of comparative use for Rx antennas. How
do I simply convert dBi to Antenna Factor ( dBV/m to dBm ). Otherwise it is
going to be very tedious if I have to build some of the modelled antennas and
compare them to a calibrated active loop antenna?!
Another question I have; for example with the EZNEC model of the K9AY the gain
quoted is -26dBi; is this gain dependent on the matching transformer as this
transformer is not in the model? Or am I missing something?
