Pattern Distortion Module

The Pattern Distortion module will model the horizontal plane pattern distortion of a side mounted, vertically-polarized, omni-directional antenna when mounted on a metal tower structure. It uses the mounting orientation and distance from the tower, as well as the size and type of tower, frequency and nominal gain. This modeled pattern can then be plotted and saved to the antenna pattern library and used later to improve accuracy when calculating area coverage.
