The wires of the model cannot touch the fast ground. After many attempts at building antennas and not understanding what was going on, a wise ham suggested 4NEC2. Any modelling software has some learning curve. NEC-2 is not adequate to model small size loop antennas perimeter lower than 0. If the model includes ground, it will be located in the XY plane. A spreadsheet also allows initial entry or adjustments after initial entry.
Some programs may impose conditions in this regard. In order to avoid errors, it is of interest to observe the following general rules while designing simulation models:. The program ran and returned the optimal lengths for minimum SWR. Under normal circumstances, the higher the segment densitythe better results will be obtained in the simulations, with the cost of a higher computing time.
It is interesting to perform both validations before continuing with the convergency and average manusl tests. This displays the antenna and models its output. In this view one can show the antenna, and, its manuaal 3D, color coded in terms of dBi gain, visual view. If the generator is to be placed in the center of a wireit is recommended to model this wire with an odd number of segments [Ref.
Take into account that NEC-2 4nnec2 the total current in the antenna, without making differences between common mode currents and differential mode currents [Ref. If you want to change editors you can do that from the main menu options as well.
Today, I designed and optimized a 3-element Moxon-like wire beam to hang vertically from the trees. The power of computers and great sofware 4nex2 saves time and money! An elevation of 90 degrees will correspond to the perpendicular to the ground plane. At first, antenna modeling software is difficult to understand, primarily because of the Cartesian coordinate method used.
The azimuth angles are measured clockwise from the Y axis towards the X axis. It took 24 iterations in about 4 seconds. On the other hand, it is necessary to observe the geometric rules presented in the next sections. Emergency Communications glossary ESP.
This program is just awesome for experimenting with antennas in software. So, if you define a LC network in the model, the code will compute loss. Technical Articles Radio Propagation: Using just one of the tests does not ensure that the model will be adequate [Ref. I used symbolic format.
In order to determine the optimum segment densityit is interesting to perform a convergency test see section 7. By following the instructions and examples provided it took only a few days. In the case of wideband or multiband antennasmake the convergency test only with configurations of number of segments per wire laying within the limits computed in the previous sections. Example, for my OCF, if I desire to know the 50 ohm impedance response, then, I specify a ohm characteristic impedance for computing SWR and assume that I have a 4: Stick to the stock editor to begin.
Arie Voors introduced this power into the 4NEC2 wrapper. N4ec2 I first ran this program I almost put it in the too hard basket. The understanding of the coordinate system employed in a simulation program is fundamental both for the design of the models and to correctly evaluate the results of the simulations.

Mozil In models of those characteristics it is advisable to perform the AGT test see section 7. NEC-2 is not adequate to model small size loop antennas perimeter lower than 0. It is advisable for the distance between them to be at 4ec2 several wire diameters as well [Ref. In the case of wideband or multiband antennas operating between a minimum frequency Fmin and a maximum frequency Fmax, I suggest the following strategy of design, for example with the help of a spreadsheet. Most of its precious features have already been said by the preceeding reviewers, what I can truly say is that 4nec2 had turned out particularly useful to me when I needed to evaluate the near-field value in my shack as produced by a quite close end-fed inverted-L antenna running right over my head. Therefore, the number of segments employed must be changed with the frequency, or must be calculated in order to be above the recommended minimum corresponding to the highest working frequency lower wavelength [Ref.

Obviously the more memory and CPU speed you have the faster the analysis will go and the more complex of an antenna that can be analyzed. Supported Operating Systems Basic functionality was tested on the following operating systems. About the Author Mark Schoonover has been licensed since when he got his Novice license on a wager with his dad. Upon his return from Navy active duty in he got his Advanced license.

The original nec2c is a non-interactive command-line application that reads standard NEC2 input files and produces an output file with data requested by "commands" in the input file. In contrast xnec2c is a GUI interactive application that in its current form reads NEC2 input files but presents output data in graphical form, e. These results are only calculated and drawn on user demand via menu items or buttons, e. Printing of results to an output file has been removed starting from version 1.
