What antenna heights are used in the YT model
at the DX end?

I know N6BV modeled 100 ft high antennas for 80 thru 17M
and 60 ft high antennas for 15 through 10 in his original 
propagation studies.  Not exactly representative of the 
typical DX stations that run around answering CQ's.

Did he ever model LOW antennas at both ends of the path
for high sunspots?
