As others have noted, EZNEC assumes that you have a matched feedpoint, so
any loss in the transformer or other matching network should be added to
your calculations, although it's probably quite small. I've measured my
transformers at ~0.2 dB loss in the 2 to 7 MHz range. The description is in
the Tech Notes section of my Web site, www.aytechnologies.com
You might not see a reference for matching network loss with commercial
antennas, since they are usually calibrated for Antenna Factor using range
measurements. Signals are sampled after the matching network; it is
considered part of the antenna.
