Seems to me a small change in elevation on 1 end would make a big change in angle a few miles away. 73 Jim Pat Barthelow wrote: Hello again Jim, I am assuming you gave me True azimuths, not magnetic azimuths... Your more detailed figures detail the vertical angles over the two mountains as follows: Red Mountain: 6.5 deg vertical angle at 45 degrees azimuth Walter Mountain 12 deg vertical angle at 91 degress azimuth At a distance of 2.5 miles (call it 12,500 ft) a 100 ft tower is one part in 125. One degree is about 1 part in 60 (small angle approximation of sin(theta)=theta), so the tower reduces the angle about half a degree. HFTA, included with the ARRL Antenna Book in recent editions, can plot all this stuff out and give you a better "picture" of what's going on. _______________________________________________ See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more.
