Antenna Modeling with 4nec2

4nec2 is a free windows-based program developed by Arie Voors for creating and viewing antenna geometries and displaying near and far field radiation patterns. It also can incorporate feedlines, coils, traps, etc., and calculates SWR, impedance, Smith Charts, and other useful information. See for more details. A brief introduction to antenna modeling will be given and then several features of the 4nec2 program will be demonstrated.
