Calculating Antenna Height
So, here is an odd question. I have a 20M dipole up in my attic space. I'm trying to model the take off angle in EZNEC. What do I use for my antenna height? The height above the ground around my house, or the height above the ground in my basement?
I'm on a relatively steep 2 acre lot and I never did figure out how to model sloping terrain. The EZCNC model of my off-center fed dipole only very, very roughly matches reality. I keep hoping some antenna guru will do a talk one meeting and teach us all how to use that infernal program.
