Default MicroDEM

Bill, don't know if you got an answer or not, but just saw your note, and
though I would have sworn it would combine gz filed I just tried it and it
errored on combining two adjacent dem.gz files but after uncompressing
combined them fine.

I use gunzip for uncompressing.

Also, mine identifies as version 10.0 build in 2006. Version 7 may be too
old, I think they kept developing after the author retired. I may be
confusing this with another free package, but I'm pretty sure that's it. In
fact I need to upgrade.

I am trying to use HFTA (from the 20th Edition Antenna Book) and am a
little confused in the MicroDEM stage. I downloaded two DEM.gz files and
placed them in C:\mapdata\DEMs\xxxxx.gz and yyyyy.gz. (I need two files
because I am located near a boundary.) Should these gz files be expanded
before using? How?

The MicroDEM setup instructions (page 31) say to click on the "Weapons
fan" icon. I do not see this icon on the MICRODEM 7.0 window. Also, at
this point, should I be seeing a map?

I am a little confused about the next step.

Default MicroDEM

Just checked my version 12 here in the office and it will combine zipped
DEMs.

Version 10 at home would not.

FileData ManipulationMergeDemsDems--Pick Multiple

And select the two you want.

Afetr the merge is over you can give the merged file a name.
