Those are all known doable heights, put the antenna on top of the 
mountain. What is a ridiculous height? I guess something over 30,000 
ft., there are no mountains higher. But I don't think something higher 
than 30,000 ft is ridiculous. I guess the FCC would limit you to Watts 
from that height though.
