Design a lightweight Moxon antenna for the upper HF bands. Named after Les Moxon, G6XN who developed it in the early 1950's, and later
refined by L. B. Cebik, W4RNL, this antenna is basically a compact version of a 2-element Yagi with folded elements, designed for a
single band, with a feed-point impedance very close to 50 ohms. It is constructed using either wire or lightweight tubing, displays
good forward gain and very good front-to-back F/B ratio.

Here you can generate plots of propagation patterns, VSWR chart, antenna currents and Smith charts for your antenna over a
choice of ground types. By changing the physical dimensions of the antenna, and refreshing these plots, you can learn a lot about
how your antenna will perform in the field.
