     The ARRL's web site has a reference to a page on the FCC's site  to 
calculate HAAT (Height Above Average Terrain):    For those of you not 
familiar with the concept, when applying for various FCC-issued licenses, an 
applicant is required to determine the height of his proposed antenna's 
radiation center above the average elevation of the terrain around the proposed 
transmitter location, averaged over a distance from 3 kM to 16 kM away, along 
eight or more radials.  

     I was extremely delighted to find that my Skyhawk's HAAT is 29 Meters for 
the full 360-degree azimuth.  However, that figure is actually negative from 
approx. 330 to 350 degrees.  So much for eastern Asia and PacRim stations.
