TARCTalks – Antenna Modeling with Dave Birnbaum, K2LYV

Dave will be presenting “Antenna Modeling”; how to use your computer to model your antenna or better yet your antenna idea. As someone once said, “All models are wrong but some are useful.” Modeling can give insight into how the antenna is likely to behave or how changes to an existing antenna modify its behavior. You can model how various alternative implementation of a proposed antenna behave. Finally, it’s a lot easier to model an antenna on the computer and get a reasonable idea of how it will perform than it is to go outside (or in your attic) and wrestle with wires and trees and HOA’s. Dave is Technical Coordinator for ARRL West Central FL Section and also serves on the Board of Directors for TARC.
