You could get 100 replies and none of them might work for you because 
the respondents aren't you.

I just spent the last half hour on the Staples and IKEA websites and 
height of every desk and table (with very few exceptions) is between 29 
and 31 inches.  That range of heights wasn't chosen by accident.

Ham operators probably vary in height from 5'-0" to 6'-6".  However, 
office chair heights can be adjusted over a wide range as you have 
already observed.  Having spent some time on your website as well, it's 
clear you're a really smart guy.  You should be able to take it from here.

This is sort of like getting on the internet and asking the world what 
size shoes you should buy!  :-)
