Hello Folks,

It's been 15+ years, but I am wanting to model antennas again. I pulled out my AO Antenna Optimizer v 6.35, and it doesn't work, so I figured 4Nec2 is now what I need to use. I like the idea of using an optimizer, and EZNEC doesn't appear to have this feature.

In any case, I have gone to the 4Nec2 site http://home.ict.nl/~arivoors/), and downloaded the 4Nec2 and 4Nex2x pieces. I played around a little bit with it, but now realize I need a "for beginner" tutorial as to how to use the software. I downloaded everything on that site, no of which looks like a tutorial specifically for the software.

Do you know of where such a tutorial may be?

Regards,

Marc

Hi Marc,
Its been a while, so your problem may be solved (or you gave up hi), but if you look on youtube there may be a few simple tutorials.
I use 4nec2 for my antenna needs and it works really well. The optimiser does work and is a snap to use. Just make sure you have symbols for the antenna lengths that you want to optimize.
There is a simple video out by user "dx2hunt" on youtube, but it may be too simple for you, or it may have disappeared ( it happens).
Good luck, I hope you have fun with this worthy program.
