Plot conformal array array directivity or pattern versus elevation

`patternElevation(sArray,FREQ)`

patternElevation(sArray,FREQ,AZ)

patternElevation(sArray,FREQ,AZ,Name,Value)

PAT = patternElevation(___)

`patternElevation(`

plots
the 2-D array directivity pattern versus elevation (in dBi) for the
array `sArray`

,`FREQ`

)`sArray`

at zero degrees azimuth angle. When `AZ`

is
a vector, multiple overlaid plots are created. The argument `FREQ`

specifies
the operating frequency.

The integration used when computing array directivity has a minimum sampling grid of 0.1 degrees. If an array pattern has a beamwidth smaller than this, the directivity value will be inaccurate.

`patternElevation(`

,
in addition, plots the 2-D element directivity pattern versus elevation
(in dBi) at the azimuth angle specified by `sArray`

,`FREQ`

,`AZ`

)`AZ`

.
When `AZ`

is a vector, multiple overlaid plots
are created.

`patternElevation(`

plots the array pattern with additional options specified by one or
more `sArray`

,`FREQ`

,`AZ`

,`Name,Value`

)`Name,Value`

pair arguments.

returns
the array pattern. `PAT`

= patternElevation(___)`PAT`

is a matrix whose entries
represent the pattern at corresponding sampling points specified by
the `'Elevation'`

parameter and the `AZ`

input
argument.
