What kind of software do people use for modelling antennas on GNU/Linux? Most amateur radio publications use eznec, which does not run on GNU/Linux and is not free software (neither gratis nor free as in freedom) while the engine powering it is (nec2).

@vu3rdd don't you get a bunch of stuff from the hamradio package?

@vu3rdd I've made a few yagi's with John Drew's free yagi calculator and they've worked really well. It's Windows, but runs fine in WINE on Linux.

@vu3rdd Here's the last one I calculated with it, a 3M long 24 element yagi tuned for 850MHz
