EZNEC antenna pattern text files - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Anybody out there using EZNEC?
What is the format of antenna text files that are created by EZNEC?
Can you provide an example or two of EZNEC antenna pattern text files?
The data usually contains columns of theta, phi, and gain.
Thanks.

Hi, I use EZNEC. What exactly are you asking for? Do you mean the text files generated by analysis of the antenna or are you talking about the files for describing the actual wires like NEC uses?

If you want to learn to play with EZNEC, download the free version to play with, go to >Help >>Contents then choose >>Test Drive.

Here are 2 of the pattern plots for a simple dipole in free space:

and the azimuth plot:

It's a nice tutorial that gives a great intro to using the software. You can also check out Terry Dettman's site here: http://www.wx7s.com/training/

73, and let me know if you have any other more specific questions.
