Stop trying to pit me and Bob against each other. You know more about Bob's exchanges with Cebik than I do. I didn't know he actually got to speak with him. Bob has also recently indicated to you he's not pleased with the way you reword the things he's described to you to fit your thoughts rather than attempt to understand them.
I'm just curious, why would seeing Cebik's opinion on the antenna outweigh CST's confirmation of his opinion years later? What's to prevent you from just saying "you typed it up" like you refer to the CST model as "my animation"? Cebik's opinion to me just gave the encouragement that Bob and myself were on the right track. CST and the collinear field testing with adjustable phase shift proved it.
You know Donald, I really for a lot of reasons hope you are right. At 76, I have nothing to loose, but maybe a little pride in getting something wrong, and maybe loosing two buddies I respect...simply for having questioned them on a antenna. You are the one exposed here Donald, and that can't be fun.
Like I've said before, I don't know enough to be so categorical in what I understand in modeling, but I try and tell what I think I see in my model. If Eznec does what you claim, then I will benefit by knowing that. I will go on to something else, and you and Bob will receive much support and gratification for hanging in with your beliefs and getting what you see too, right.
We all win that way, except again, I may loose two buddies.
I've said my piece, and I'll wait for the results. This bickering between us is not fair to WB6BYU. He has something at steak here too, and I appreciate his efforts to try and answer some questions. I also think we need to give BoothMonster some credit for having the courage to bring is antenna project to this forum what ham operators that are willing to listen and help.
I would like to know how to post an EZ file here on eham, if anyone has a suggestion.
Thanks again WB6BYU and any other's with comments on this topic,
