To all expressing an interest about sharing information, expertise, and
models for antenna modelling software/antenna design, we have a couple of

qth.com has an existing antenna reflector as copied below:

I just now successfully subscribed, so I don't know how use this particular
forum is for our purposes, how focussed, or what the signal-to-noise ration
might be. Perhaps someone with more experience than I would care to comment.

At Rus Healy's suggestion, I contacted Bill Fisher W4AN about hosting an
antenna modeling reflector at contesting.com. He very graciously assented.

I don't want to rob another reflector of content, or dilute what is going
on at towertalk, topband, etc. Lord knows, I have no aspirations to be "Mr.
Big Deal Reflector Administrator"!

Several folks offered the use of their personal homepages, or pointed out
homepages that have collections of models and/or modeling information.
Regardless of what we do, these would be very good to collect and link for
the benefit of all. IMHO, anyone who doesn't have LB Cebik's site
prominently bookmarked is missing one of the primo sources of information
regarding all things antenna -- I know there are many more out there.

Post your opinions to me, and I'll summarize to the group.
