I had read somewhere that there are "heights" or "rows" (?) that provide 
better reception than others.  In other words, if one mounts his antenna 
in between the good reception "heights", lowering it into the next lower 
good "height" will get better reception even though it's lower.  Is this 
true and if so, how can one tell at what heights are optimum for mounting?
