     Thanks for the kind comments on the MARC (Mast, Antenna and Rotator
Calculator) program.

     Stanislaus county is only officially rated at 70 MPH which is the lowest
wind speed that the TIA-222 gives.  For further information, contact your
local building department and see if they have an ASCE 7-88 wind map for your
area.  It shows areas where higher wind speeds may exist (ridgetops and other
good ham locations, valleys, etc.).  You can also check with your local
airport to see what they have to say.  They'll know about many areas of micro
weather phenomena.
