   The Directional Antenna ID number is the first / leftmost field in
   this database, followed by azimuth | relative field value pairs.
   Please note that patterns in this data file are NOT rotated: you
   must apply any indicated clockwise rotation.

   ERP = ERP (maximum) times the [(relative field value) squared]
