And it has an optimizer routine, which EZNEC does not, and at Dayton a 
few years ago, W7EL said he had no intention to write one.

I use EZNEC V5 with the NEC2 engine.  I like it, and find it pretty 
intuitive to use, but have friends who swear by 4NEC.  I downloaded it, 
but the user interface was sufficiently different that I have never 
taken the time to learn to use it, and EZNEC does most of what I need 
(sure would like that optimizer). :)
