Dear friends, I think that publishing the C31XR .ant file is not a problem
for Force 12. And I suggest that nobody should be more copyright minded than
Please take note that some months ago I bought a Force 12 C4.
I was very interested about his radiation XYZ diagram, so I asked to Nathan
Hoffman of Force 12 if he could send me a C4 ant. file. Well, he hasn't a C4
file in .ant format but only NEC files, anyway he was really a so kind man
to send me a C3 .ant file permitting me to study the C3 (10-15-20m) part of
my new high performance C4.
Really if this in not a problem for Nathan I think nobody should take care
about this "problem".
Also if somebody really want to home made a C31XR, from the antenna manual
he has all the lenght and distance to copy it without problem.
