I highly recommend you view this presentation by Dean Straw, N6BV who wrote
HFTA.  It will explain a whole lot.

Subject: [TowerTalk] Takeoff angle

 I've been playing around with HFTA trying to figure out the best height/
configuration for my antennas and it dawned on me I wasn't sure what the
best take off angles are.  I know low is better than high for DX, I'm
assuming it's a range that I'm looking for.
 When looking at the plots what would be considered good take off angles for
DX contests from the  midwest.
What is considered too high of an angle for DX?
