Phased Array Design Toolbox v2.5



10 Feb 2009 (Updated )

A toolbox allowing rapid definition and evaluation of 2D and 3D phased array antennas.

% Interpolated half-wave Dipole pattern rotated 35Deg 
% about the Yaxis. Freq = 300 MHz
% Source files are :   The NEC2 model used to generate data
%                     dipole.out   Data for interpolation 
% Nec data has been calculated in 10deg steps in theta and phi.
% Demonstrates the use of the 'interp' element type
