 average HAAT over 360 degrees is 98 meters, a skosh under 100 m, or 322 feet. But the radials at
 degree-points toward Boston drop off to as low as the mid 70s, perhaps partly due to the hills you see
 in Medford and such as (home to the old WEEI-103.3 FM tower years ago, then WFNX for a while). The
 directional antenna diminution in that direction is as low as .500 as well. But they're saying some day
 that may change.
