Looking for help with HFSS9 - 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.

I am using HFSS to design a microstrip antenna. I have not too much experience with simulation program and I have problems with the definition of the ports. I am not sure which kind of ports are more suitable for my design because I need to look for at least 5 of the propagation modes and for example with a "lumped port" I can look only at one of them. :(

Have somebody of you experience in the definition of ports in microstrip structures and can give me a piece of advice to undestand how they work with HFSS?

Thank you very much :)
