Be VERY careful modelling different sized conductors that are 
joined. You can get some really weird gain figures.

The windows version of EZnec provides "average gain" when you 
plot the pattern in "3D". That model is very useful for spotting flaws, 
since average gain should always be less than 0dB. With most 
verticals, average gain should be less than -2db.
