(b) Draw a line on the contour map between the two proposed

sites as in figure 2-7. Measure the length of this line and convert

it to the distance between the two points.

(c) Determine the elevation at each site from the

Figure 2-7.

Plotting profiles - lower altitudes

NOTE: Add the elevation of the antenna mast to the elevation for the

site.

For example, for path D in figure 2-8, station N is

1,350 feet.

Adding the antenna height (50 feet) brings the

total elevation to 1,400 feet.

Mark this point on the vertical scale of the graph above the

0-kilometer/mile point.

Station O has an elevation of 1,400 feet.

Adding the height of the antenna, we have an elevation of 1,450 feet.

Mark this point on the vertical scale above the 43-kilometer/27-mile

point (the distance between sites N and 0).
