Chris - I realize that the software is rather basic, but the PPLOT
program addresses effects of antenna tilt on the elevation pattern,
which is something the NEC and EZNEC antenna evaluation programs do not.

The NOISE and REFLECT programs are rather simple, but lots of number
crunching is going on, and the information supplements other meteor
scatter programs such as your FORWARD program.

I tried to avoid typing in the programs myself since I am old and a
hunt and pecker typist; but, I found out this afternoon that the
source programs are NOT in the book as I was given the impression by
the author. He only provides further descriptions of the programs in
the appendix.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could send me the source code for
PPLOT, NOISE, and REFLECT, and in addition I will also need the 12
data files for PPLOT; they are the *.EDT files.

I now owe you a couple of beers!!!

Thanks and Best Regards
