[antennaware] vertical modelling
Mon, 18 Jun 2001 07:05:15 -0600
I have access to NEC4 and it indeed does handle the buried and elevated
radials properly. I also have an interest in shortened verticals. If you
to send me a NEC input file or even better an EZnec input file I will be
to model it for you. The NEC4 code cannot be shared but I am willing to
Incidentally the results you cite seem reasonable based upon my
with inverted L designs.
