Please don't rely entirely on modeling when designing and installing an
antenna.  Remember its just a tool to see if an antenna works in theory.
Unless you can build real world interactions into the model or schema then
its not an end all.   I got an excellent model for a W2PV
3 el 12 meter beam but putting it up 6 feet below my KT34XA really went
askew.   The 12 meter beam went to 25.9Mhz and both the 10 and 15 meter
portions of the VA went haywire.
