Raca summit @ EA5 - free ground gain

On my last visit to the Raca summit in EA5 near Castellon, I worked USA, TX on QRP with an inv V dipole at low height on 21MHz. I was curious to see how much ground gain I got from up there...

I downloaded the terrain profile data from the K6TU web page after registering.
HFTA shows a good 3-6dBi gain at low angles and a 4-5dB improvement vs. the low dipole in flat terrrain.

location: 40.049806, -0.015337
Raca - USA - 4-5dB of free ground gain
