I'm 3.8 miles away from a 300+ish foot tall grain bin that has (idk how big or what type of) a dsl tower on top of it. The distance isn't the issue it's the woods there's a 1/3 mile of thick woods the signal would have to go though.
My receiver will be mounted on an old 20foot tower I figure most trees are 80 foot tall and the angle from my receiver to the tower would be (at the point of the trees 3/4+ the way down the line of site) 100foot+ right?

Guess my question is how badly do trees hurt the signal?
