       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
       optimise 144e10

       filename         ASCII data file in which design is put.


       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).
