Profile of Elevations (PROFILE)

The PROFILE program calculates a profile of the elevations between two geographic locations using the digitized data from the WOTL-format topographic file(s). It may optionally list the take-off and receiving angles from the two points (assumed to be transmitter and receiver), along with the distances to the radio horizons. The array of elevations may also be listed. A plot is generated, showing the elevations on the vertical axis and distance on the 4/3 earth parabolic horizontal axis.
