Antenna Simulation with xnec2c

Hi everybody,

here are the slides and corresponding papers of a talk I gave at our club station DK0TU in August 2015.

*The slides (in German): antennensimulation.pdf

*Example .nec files:

-Dipole for the 10m band:

-Dipole for the 10m band with ground:

-Dipole for the 10m band with imperfect ground:

-A 5 element yagi for the 10m band with 116 segments in the simulation:

*Background about the boundary element method:

*About the Numerical Electromagnetics Code:

*Important: the NEC2 manual:

Have fun simulating your own antenna designs, 73,
