Are there any procedures available to adjust an antenna's windloading
capacity based on elevation?

It seems with lower air pressure (here in Denver 5280') an antenna might
be able to withstand higher wind velocity than at sea level.

Taken to an extreme (outer space) an antenna's windload capacity should be
essentially infinite.

Any references or thoughts?
