EZNEC News From Roy Lewallen, W7EL

After 31 years of developing, selling, and supporting EZNEC and its predecessor ELNEC, I’m going to retire. Beginning Jan. 1, 2022, EZNEC Pro/2 will be free and can be copied and distributed. All support will stop on that date, and no refunds will be issued. Until that time, prices and sales will be unchanged. Please see for full details. I’ll try to answer any questions you have after reading the announcement.

I’m deeply grateful to all the EZNEC users who have made it possible for me to escape the Dilbert cartoon and make a living as a one person company with no bosses and no employees. It’s been wonderful and a lot of fun.

I’d appreciate your passing this information along.

73, Roy Lewallen, W7EL
