Intermediate Antenna Modeling:

on price with purchase of both Tutorial Books

As the next step beyond the Basic Antenna Modeling Book, Intermediate Antenna Modeling introduces the reader to advanced antenna modeling use NEC2 and NEC4.
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 entrylevel software. There is a need for basic guidance through the maze of geometry and control commands and Intermediate Antenna Modeling: A HandsOn 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 stepbystep progression through the entire command structure for both NEC2 and NEC4. The 488 pages are divided into 3 parts, each containing 7 chapters. An appendix contains useful data for modelers.
Like the entrylevel volume by the same author, Basic Antenna Modeling: A HandsOn Tutorial, each chapter makes use of many exercise models to permit the reader to correlate the text directly with antenna modeling practice in NEC2 and NEC4. 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 selfstudy course and as a classroom text. The large format (8.5" x 11") and over 300 illustrations promote easy reading.
