Helical Antenna
===============

Introduction
-------------
**This tutorial covers:**

* setup of a helix using the wire primitive
* setup a lumped feeding port (R_in = 120 Ohms)
* adding a near-field to far-field (nf2ff) box using an efficient subsampling
* calculate the S-Parameter of the antenna
* calculate and plot the far-field pattern
