I've gotten NEC to blow up in so many ways using perfectly
reasonable wire antenna designs, it's hard to even begin
guessing which of the many ways NEC can blow up Chip ran
Even a simple double L / lazy U antenna, fed in the middle,
with no radials under it, can get NEC to come up with negative
real impedances (and SWR values "up to" -1000) on some
All rights reversed.
