       optimise - output data file formats


       This  manual  page describes the output formats of the files created by
       the Yagi-Uda project’s optimise program. The input files  required  for
       optimise  are plain ASCII which can be generated by input or first.  or
       may be generated manually with a text editor,  if  care  is  used.  The
       format required by optimise is described in input(5). Optimise’s output
       files, which have the .bes extension are the same format as  the  input
       files and are again obviously described by input(5).

Example of a .up file.

       The  .up  file  list  the  improvements  made by optimise to an antenna
       design. Starting from the original design, the file  is  appended  each
       time  a new better design is found. Here is an example, where the final
       line is the performance of the 4 element beam with the .dat file  shown
           1 7.57dBi,  16.93dB F/B, Z=(31.77-56.34j) Ohms, SWR=3.95, SL=16.95 dB
          84 7.58dBi,  16.93dB F/B, Z=(31.78-56.32j) Ohms, SWR=3.95, SL=16.95 dB
         623 7.58dBi,  16.93dB F/B, Z=(31.78-56.28j) Ohms, SWR=3.95, SL=16.95 dB
       89345 9.74dBi, 103.06dB F/B, Z=(37.55 +1.61j) Ohms, SWR=1.33, SL=17.78 dB

What is what in the .up file

       The  first  column  is  an  integer specifying the iteration. The other
       columns, going from left to right are gain(dBi), FB,  input  impedance,
       VSWR and level of the most significant sidelobe, in dB down on the peak


       yagi(1),  output(1),   input(1),   optimise(1),   first(1),   input(5),
       output(5) and yagi(5).
