model_t.gif (1209 bytes)his disk contains all of the exercise files for Basic Antenna Modeling: A Hands-On Tutorial in .EZ format for use with EZNEC (DOS or later versions).  The book, a general introduction to modeling techniques with NEC-2 by L. B. Cebik, W4RNL, is available from us at:

The 330 exercise files for 150 antennas that accompany the book are in .NEC format, which would require manual conversion to the .EZ format. This disk does the conversion work for you! The exercise files include many different types of antennas of interest to amateur radio operators and others. They range from Yagis to phased arrays, from ground plane verticals to antennas with capacity hats, from lower HF thin wire arrays to long UHF beams. Hence, this disk can also serve as a basic collection of useful antenna models in the .EZ format. Here is a Table of Contents of the topics covered:
