9 Radiation Pattern The listings under - RADIATION PATTERNS - in Output 2-8 show the vertical angle, theta, at which the pattern is calculated versus the azimuth angle, phi. 00 - POWER GAINS VERT. HOR. 13 ***** DATA CARD NO. 00E+00 ***** DATA CARD NO. 000 measured from the zenith overhead as 0Њ, making the horizon 90Њ. Thus a horizontal pattern is calculated with a value of theta ϭ 90Њ, not 0Њ. The field shown as E(THETA) is the vertically polarized component of radiation and E(PHI) is the horizontally polarized component.

41 42 CHAPTER 4 Array Geometry The broadcaster, on the other hand, identifies points in the geographical coordinate system by employing the compass heading and the distance from a given reference point. The compass heading, designated phi (Φ), is measured from true north and increases in the clockwise direction. The broadcaster measures the elevation angle, theta (Θ), referenced to the horizon with the zenith being taken as 90Њ. It is plain that the two coordinate systems differ, so those of us who use NEC-2 for broadcast work have to reconcile these differences by defining a coordinate system that is convenient for the broadcaster to use and is also acceptable to NEC-2.

The X coordinate and the Z coordinate are specified the same by both NEC-2 and the broadcaster, so no change is required in specifying those two coordinates. The elevation angles differ only in definition. NEC-2 defines the zenith as 0Њ and the broadcaster’s convention is to define the horizon as 0Њ. The simplest reconciliation here is for the broadcaster to accept the NEC-2 definition. If a horizontal pattern is desired, just make the NEC-2 calculation at 90Њ instead of 0Њ, and so on. That is not difficult and is the convention followed in the remainder of this book.
