MGMR3D is a code that calculates the complete radio footprint, i.e. intensity, polarization and pulse shapes, for a parametrized shower current density using a semianalytic approach. The non-Monte-Carlo code is fast (typically 10 seconds for a complete footprint) and thus can be used in a chi-square optimization calculation of atmospheric electric fields or to optimize antenna geometry.
