abz2(phi, g, rays, width)
% abz2.m - azimuthal gain plot in absolute units - 2pi angle range
% Usage: h = abz2(phi, g, rays, width)
% plots g(phi)
% phi = azimuthal angle over [0, 2pi]
% it assumes max-g is unity 
% unity-gain and half-power circles are added
% rays = 30 degrees by default, and can be omitted
% rays = 45 draws rays at 45-degree angles
% width = linewidth of gain curve
% width = 1.0 points by default
% width = 1.5 for thicker line
% see also ABZ, DBZ, DBZ2, ABP, DBP, ARRAY
