path to the NEC excutable will be
<code>/path/of/your/choice/nec-2/nec/nec2</code></p>
<h2>Testing</h2>
<p>To check that your installation is working, a sample log file containing a
synthetic test case is provided. This is located in the <code>testing</code>
subdirectory of the directory where you installed the model. The file is
called <code>1970-01-01_tx.log</code>.</p>
<p>Copy this file to (or make a symlink to it in) your log file directory which
you configured during the setup process. Then start the model by giving the
<code>erpmodel</code> command at the shell prompt (assuming you installed it
as described above). Then at the Octave prompt, give this command
<pre>
<code>erpmodel('01-Jan-1970 00:00:00')</code>
</pre>
This will run the model for a hypothetical case where all the transmitters
are used with identical power and perfect phasing to generate a vertical beam
on 5.423 MHz using Array 1.</p>
<p>When the modelling is complete, a plot will appear on the screen. A PDF
file of the plot will be created in your "plots" directory and a ZIP file
containing the full NEC-2 model output will be created in your "results"
directory.</p>
