Fix bugs and enhance..

#8

HF Car model

27 Mar 2002

VK1BRH

Input the shape and then run NEC2D – this project may be interesting to write up and provide useful data confirming current experience with hf antenna placement on my 4*4. (It’s a simple simulation  run.)

#10

Finish GLOBE DEM extraction program

1

28 Feb 2002

 

VK1BRH

I have a bug in Extract.exe which garbles Australia when extracting the huge landmass – need to fix and forward all programs to Jack at www.antennex.com.

Describe what is inside this. Writeup the Barrett 950 too!

#13

Simulate Spiral loading

26 Mar 2002

 

[email protected]

“The only question I have is, how long should the wire for the spiral be 1/10 wl or 1/16 wl? my first attempt will be 17m. If this one works well, I plan on constructing one for 160m.”

#21

Analyse ionospheric results of Marcel published in antennex.

28 March 2002

 

antennex?

Look at path losses and do the phase calcs using homogenous ionospheric model and see how it interferes with the surface wave.

#15

Use the new wxWindows C++ development environment

Super gain and losses – what happens?

#20

Look at ITU curves and reproduce them

#23

Investigate Dan’s QTH

3

05 Apr 2002

 

 

N2DT

Need DEM data for Dan’s QTH. ( lat=41.16632,lon=-73.745366) See topographic map as supplied by Dan. Interesting propagation enhancement possibly knife-edge diffraction in some directions and as a result of guiding/or reflection in other directions. Could at least extract model data and look at terrain.

#22

Adcock antenna field strength meter?

This will lead to more articles e.g. Marcels and future work from Dr Kabbary. This is in March 2002 www.antennex.com .

I wrote Extract and Convert and was able to get the Egyptian terrain into MicroDem.

This is in May 2002 www.antennex.com .

antennex

Determined Zo and Zin, not able to determine Ez and Hpi without more data or other boundary conditions. The challenge is out, wait for June 2002 issue of www.antennex.com .

#4

Fix nec.exe source code so it compiles with Visual C++ and processes all input cards that affect the segment number.

99

(Done)

1 May 2002

12 May 2002

VK1BRH

Fixed the token parser to handle more input cards which affect the number of segments, also provided the –s  switch to allow user override of the calculations. Hand the new version to Dave, VK1DT - still testing. To be handed over to Ray Anderson for placement in Unofficial Nec archives replacing the original nec_exec.zip. Compiled with Visual Studio.NET v7c.

#5

(see item 14)

Dave is modelling with NEC, I want to model with Reflection coefficient – need to make a matrix of points and calculate the rays.

#14

Reflection from a plane surface. Interference patterns and nulls.

Look at the interference fringes due to reflection from a flat surface. Postulate from Dave is that the dessert/Nile boundary may be reflecting the surface wave see item 7.

#6

Finish 2-layer model for Egyptian Nile Delta

24 Mar 2002

  (Not doing)

VK1BRH

This doesn’t look promising – need to complete it though to discount possibility. Also need to inform Jack Belrose of findings.
