BASIC ANTENNA MODELING
Basic Antenna Modeling introduces the newer modeler to the use of NEC-2 as implemented in entry-level software, such as NEC-Win Plus. Its 21 chapters fall into 3 major sections: Basic Modeling and Model Testing; Common Modeling Techniques, Limitations, and Workarounds; and Practical Antenna Modeling. Each chapter or lesson develops fundamental modeling concepts with text, illustrations, and exercise models, with attention to various aspects of NEC-2 inputs and outputs. Some 300+ exercise models and variations accompany the 475 pages of this self-study course. Since the text illustrates all models as standard input files in ASCII format, the volume is useful to those using various versions of NEC software.

INTERMEDIATE ANTENNA MODELING
Intermediate Antenna Modeling provides over 488 pages of illustrated text and 630+ exercise models and variants as a means of introducing virtually the entire command sets of both NEC-2 and NEC-4. The self-study course is designed for use in conjunction with more advanced software. The major division of the 21 chapters are The Geometry Commands; Far-Field and General Control Commands; and Special Outputs, Control Commands, and Techniques. The course pays special attention to commands that have divergent forms in the 2 cores and to workarounds to simulate some commands or to provide external calculations of non-standard outputs.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Considered an expert on antennas, L. B. has published more than 20 books, with works on antennas for both the beginner and the advanced student. Among his other books are these Basic and Intermediate Tutorials in the use of NEC antenna modeling software and compilations of his many shorter pieces. His articles have appeared in virtually every amateur radio publication, with translations of some into several languages.
He has been a student of electronics and antennas for 50+ years and a teacher for almost 40 years. In addition to books, his writings include over 500 articles and reviews. L.B. is Technical & Educational Advisor to the ARRL. He is Technical Editor and monthly contributor of articles for antenneX -- (also the publisher of his books now sold worldwide).

L. B. has tested and used almost all of the commercial implementations of NEC and MININEC over the past two+ decades. In addition, he has written extensively about antennas and antenna modeling at both basic and more advanced levels for many U.S. publications. His writings have included tutorial articles for electronics teachers and regular columns for several publications on various aspects of antenna fundamentals.

He retired in 1999 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, as professor of philosophy with special interests in formal logic. In addition, he had served the University in past years as Assistant Dean for Research and as Director of Research Compliances. His interests in radio frequency communications arose out of his amateur radio experiences as W1APS, W0JGG, and now W4RNL.
