       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 for-
       mat  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 de-
       sign. 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  ear-
	   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 col-
       umns, 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

       yagi(1),	output(1), input(1),  optimise(1),  first(1),  input(5),  out-
       put(5) and yagi(5).
