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 manu-
ally 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
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

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
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.
