Antenna Modeling With 4NEC2. Presented to HOTARC. By Craig Weixelbaum. May 22, Basic Modeling Approach using 4Nec2. The goals of this A Beginner’s Tutorial for 4NEC, a NEC2 Distribution. Written and Tested by Scroll down, and find “Latest 4nec2 version ()” under the “Downloads” header. Hello! Does anyone know where I can find some good tutorial/guide to get a basics of how to use 4nec2. I am total beginner. I was able to find.

Why so many and what to do with them?

AF modulator in Transmitter what is the A? Hopefully this information is useful. An input file is usually a text tutoeial like a. A choke near the feed point for a normal dipole is trying to choke off the RF compared to the drive impedance at that point — which may be only a 50 to ohms.

4Nec2 Software Tutorial Needed

Much better is just a simple solenoid made from the coax feed line itself. It’s not like I’m exceptionally stupid, just strapped for time and I would like to model my vertical without putting someone else tutorixl to do it.

ModelSim – How to force a struct type written in SystemVerilog? I’d recommend to run an example like a simple dipole on a single frequency and observe the impedance, pattern, VSWR etc. Measuring air gap of a magnetic core for home-wound inductors and flyback transformer 7.


Notice in the model figures that the feed point is substantially below the mid-point. Note that the capacitance is almost entirely just a function of the coil diameter.

Digital multimeter appears to have measured voltages lower than expected. Besides the antenna I also modeled the feed transmission line to the transmitter. This simple antenna system is a great sandbox for learning the tricks of the NEC codes and some of the basic principles of antenna design, and to find all the pitfalls of this nice idea.

Feedline current with mistuned choke. Thank you in advance. In it select “Use original file” then 4ned2 Generate. After the simulation completes you will see that there are parameters in the main window which represent the simulation.

You are commenting using your WordPress. My gut feeling is that all this effort is misplaced.

You will need to know this eventually, but in my opinion, doing this at the beginning before you know what you are trying to analyze makes it more confusing. Losses in inductor of a boost converter 9.

Reflections from the ends of the cable will tend to cancel each other out with this special length cable. Change the length of part of the antenna and observe it in the geometry window and also how it changes the simulation result.

For this antenna, I also optimize for the antenna gain at 12 degrees elevation. I lose files sometimes in 4nec2, cannot see the logic of that organisation.


A Simple Pull-up Mono-Band Verticle Dipole Antenna Design – and 4NEC2 Tutorial

It is, thank you very much! So, I’m curious what you liked or didn’t like. How can I tutorual that? I think the reason you are seeing the NEC error is that by default 4NEC2 opens the last antenna you were trying to simulate.

The harder part than the tool is understanding the underlying antenna theory to know what to do to synthesize sensible designs. You can choose which pattern to observe.

Tutorials on how to use 4nec2

This is probably the main downfall to this antenna design because it depends so strongly on getting this choke right. This means you don’t have to enter the parameters for a specific antenna until you know more of how the program works.

I can’t really comment on the best tutorial since there were none when I started using it. I then run the rest of the feed line down to ground where NEC assumes it is grounded and which could be where the radio is located. Then incrementally build on your knowledge base of antenna data entry.
