input - Yagi-Uda project antenna defining program
input [ - h ]
The program input is one of a number of executable programs that forms
part of a set of programs, collectively known as the Yagi-Uda project ,
which were designed for analysis and optimisation of Yagi-Uda antennas.
input is an interactive program, that asks the user for information
about a Yagi design, such as position of elements, spacing between
elements, frequency span of interest and a filename to save the data
to. input then writes this information into an ASCII file, which can
be read by yagi or optimise The file is ASCII and it’s format is easily
understood by inspection (there are comments printed in it), so it can
if necessary be edited manually.
After running input and specifying a filename (for example 144e10) you
should then type yagi 144e10 and then output 144e10 and optionally

Both DOS and Unix versions have been built. The DOS version as
distributed requires a 386 PC with a 387 maths coprocessor.

Bugs should be reported to
Bugs tend actually to be fixed if they can be isolated, so it is in
your interest to report them in such a way that they can be easily
If a mistake is made during inputting of data (such as entering an
incorrect length), it is not possible to go back and correct this. You
should make a note of the error, and edit the ASCII text file with a
text editor (vi, DOS edit etc).
