NAME

       input - input data file format

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page describes the output format of the file created by the
       Yagi-Uda project input or first programs. The file is an ASCII file, so
       can  be  edited  manually  if required. It is read by yagi or optimise.
       The program optimise also creates the same file format.

       A typical file, for an antenna designed for the 2m amateur band (144-146
       MHz) might be as shown below. Note:
       1) Reflector is at position 0.0
       2) All elements lengths/positions are in m.
