 ```Use trigonometry. TAN (angle) = Height / Distance = 1100 / 1.5 X 5280 = 1100 / 7940 = 0.139 The Angle = 7.9 degrees (per my college slide rule...can't find my calculator!) Above 7.9 degrees, NO PROBLEM. Below 7.9 degrees, your signal will be scattered and/or reflected upward. de Tom N4KG .............................
