Basic Antenna Modeling: 


Basic Antenna Modeling introduces the reader to the art and craft of good antenna modeling using NEC2. The principles of antenna modeling are perfectly general and apply to all versions of NEC2. The 475page tutorial contains 21 chapters, an appendix containing extensive information that is useful to modelers, and an index. The text is designed for both individual selfstudy or for classroom use. Plus, the book is accompanied with 300 exercise files for 150 antennas in .NEC format (for same files in EZNEC format, see below). These files will really help get you started modeling right away.
The tutorial is divided into three main parts. Part A covers basic modeling and model testing, while Part B explores common modeling techniques, limitations, and workarounds. Part C introduces the modeler to techniques and cautions that apply to practical antenna work. Each chapter contains a number of basic exercise modelsincluded on disk or CDROM with the bookalong with variations used in the exercises. The exercises involve user modeling, but are accompanied by extensive commentary on the modeling technique, situation, or antenna type. There are over 150 different exercise models, and the total number of .NEC files is over 330. The models alone provide the new modeler with a useful collection of basic antenna designs. This 22chapter book of more than 475 pages contains the following sections:
