NDB Antenna Calculator

This calculator is an implementation of equations described in NDB Antennas written by John R. Pinks and published by Nautel. The defaults are antenna parametrics as used in the article in order to give a starting point for new users. This is work in progress and it currently lacks options to enter parametric for ground resistance.
