I don't think EZNEC tells you the whole story, in this case - I would
expect that high yagi to give you much better signals into the West
Coast by virtue of the lower angle of radiation. This problem would be
duck soup for MultiNEC, which combined antenna patterns with propagation
data and produced coverage maps - too bad it's off the market now.
