- use google earth to project a line to the satellite (use 36 thousand km as height) to check there is no nearby obstruction
I’ve successfully QSO thru QO-100 with 0.2 deg elevation from Jakarta, Indonesia (locator: OI33jr), but a friend 2 km north of me can’t make it as there is a mountain in the west of Jakarta that blocks his path (I barely skirt that mountain).
