Hey, I tried it, this works real slick.

A couple of points, tho.  There are different allowables for "Controlled"
and "Uncontrolled" environments.  I couldn't find where those terms were

Also, you have to input the "DB" gain for your antenna.  Ther has been so
much confusion over these figures in the past, it would be nice if the
correct values to use for several of the more popular antennas could be
made available somewhere.

Finally, as W7TI mentions, "if it's correct."  The official blessing for
the methodology needs to be issued....
