Re: nec antenna modeling



is anyone here actually using antennavis?  when I looked at it and pointed it
out some time ago It looked to be half done and abandoned just perpetuating the
FUD in dads eyes on linux and open source.

last I tried to build it, it failed miserably.  now if It's much more difficult
than apt-get install he probably won't use it...one reason why debian seems to
be a great candidate for this.  If I have trouble getting things build he won't
even come close, make being a foreign concept. his comment being that, "windows
just works" (until it crashes or gets found by some sort of malware)

tnx kg6kqt

He doesn't want to have to manually create input card decs but would rather just enter coordinates for wires into a spreadsheet.  graphical representation of the input model,  the output E and H plane patterns, and element current distribution is desired.  If I can get this working we have a linux convert.
