Reconstruct approximate 3-D radiation pattern from two orthogonal slices

`patternFromSlices(`

plots the approximate 3-D pattern reconstructed from the input data containing the 2-D
pattern along the vertical and horizontal plane as well as the polar and azimuthal angles
in the spherical coordinates.`vertislice`

,`theta`

,`horizslice`

,`phi`

)

`patternFromSlices(`

plots the approximate 3-D pattern with the horizontal slice provided as a real-valued
scalar. The syntax assumes that the antenna is omnidirectional with symmetry about the
Z-axis.`vertislice`

,`theta`

,`horizslice`

)

`patternFromSlices(`

plots the approximate 3-D pattern reconstructed from only vertical pattern data, along
with the assumption of azimuthal omni directionality and that horizontal pattern data is
equal to maximum value of vertical pattern data.`vertislice`

,`theta`

)

`[___] = patternFromSlices(___,`

provides a way to specify customization and tuning options to the pattern reconstruction
method.`Name,Value`
