GM John… nope -- AM for Antenna Model, an older program written by a now SK.
Dan — I did read that paper — slowly and with great interest. I did email Greg, but didn’t realize the .ez files could be read by AM. But, I have another fellow who had been modeling the Moxon 40M 2 el on AM and he is sending me the file.
Looks like I will have something to work with. I haven’t used AM at all, even though I have had it for a long time. I will have a learning curve, to be sure. My last extensive modeling experience was with YO and Minninec 15 years or more ago. — I miss them !
I loaded the old AM CD on my Win7/64 O/S last night and it runs!! Thank God for small favors.
Thanks for all of your advice. I appreciate it.
