dbadd(type, style, th, g, rays, Rm, width)
% dbadd.m - add gain in dB
%
% Usage: h = dbadd(type, style, th, g, rays, Rm, width)
%
% type = 1, 2 for polar, azimuthal
% style = line style of added gain curve, e.g., '--'
% 
% use h to add legends: h1 = dbz(phi, g1);
%                       h2 = dbadd(2, '--', phi, g2);
%                       legend([h1,h2], 'gain 1', 'gain 2');
%
% rest of arguments as in DBP and DBZ
