       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 earlier.
           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 gain.
