Sorry to report that my copy of EZNEC, Version 2.00, does not have the
.NEC option for saving files. However, it does have the Print Description
(PD) option of saving the antenna description to a file, which is ASCII.
Since the PD contains the wire set-up table, extracting that info for
transferral to a different implementation of NEC should be
straightforward. Just the thing for transferring those input files for
the TH11. . ..
Version 2.00 of EZNEC contains some very interesting new features. There
is a quick sweep for SWR, with graphical output and access to the data for
each frequency in the sweep. The pattern display has been expanded in two
ways. The normal 2-D display now has a movable cursor so that you can run
it to any point on the trace and read values--a good way to check lobes
and nulls on a complex pattern. There is also a 3-D display that is
functional as well as interesting: the user can highlight azimuth or
elevation slices by a moving cursor, and by a single keystroke, bring up a
detailed 2-D plot of the slice. (These are not yet on EZNEC Pro.) There
may be other features as well, but those are the highlights. I doubt that
Roy has had time to update his website yet, since debugging went down to
the wire for Dayton.
Hope this data is useful.
