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 ele-
ments, 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

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 reproduced.
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
