As the next step beyond the Basic Antenna Modeling Book, Intermediate Antenna Modeling introduces the reader to advanced antenna modeling use NEC-2 and NEC-4.

Modelers who use advanced modeling software have access to the full set of NEC commands. Hence, antenna modeling becomes a much different task relative to working with entry-level software. There is a need for basic guidance through the maze of geometry and control commands and Intermediate Antenna Modeling: A Hands-On Tutorial fulfills much of that need. With the exception of surface patch commands and a few variations on some control commands, the volume provides a step-by-step progression through the entire command structure for both NEC-2 and NEC-4. The 488 pages are divided into 3 parts, each containing 7 chapters. An appendix contains useful data for modelers.

Like the entry-level volume by the same author, Basic Antenna Modeling: A Hands-On Tutorial, each chapter makes use of many exercise models to permit the reader to correlate the text directly with antenna modeling practice in NEC-2 and NEC-4. Over 630 models are arranged in 21 series, with each series keyed to specific topics within individual chapters. The product contains all exercise models. Intermediate Antenna Modeling is useful both as a self-study course and as a classroom text. The large format (8.5" x 11") and over 300 illustrations promote easy reading.
