Manuscript Title: Radiation potential of a point antenna immersed in drifting cold or hot (hydrodynamical) plasma.
Authors: E. Fijalkow, G. Mourgues
Program title: DRFT
Catalogue identifier: ABUZ_v1_0
Distribution format: gz
Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 18(1979)297
Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: IBM 370/168X2, CII-HB.
Operating system: MVS-JES3.
RAM: 59K words
Word size: 64
Keywords: Plasma physics, Drift velocity, Forced potential, Point antenna, Wave plasma.
Classification: 19.13.

Nature of problem:
Computation at arbitrary given distances from the source of the radiation diagrams of the potential forced by a pulsating point antenna immersed in a hot uniformly drifting plasma.

Restrictions:
The only restrictions on the program are:
1) Omega must be greater than the plasma frequency omega p
2) Theta must be different from phi/2.

Running time:
The test run output (full radiation diagram theta varying from zero to 180 degrees, one distance from the source) about 62.87 s.
