Not sure where to post this..I'm new to the forum.  I've been using Boltec 350 and NexStorm for 5 years now.  I have had ranging dialed in to varying degrees and various times.  I would like to approach it more systematically from now on.  I am also just starting to work with the segmented ranging calibration.  I have seen that the segmented ranging calibration can be anticipated with topology.  Is this true and how would I adjust based on local topology?  I am 15 miles into the front range of the rockies.  I am surrounded by hills and some reach 20-30 degrees above the horizon.  Twenty miles to my west running from north to south are the Rockies (continental divide).    Can I make adjustments to my segmented ranging just based on where my highest local peaks are?  Or is based entirely on adjusting from lightning strike detections?

If there is a better group to ask this question, please let me know.

There is a Boltek specific area on WxForum:
It might be a good idea to move your question to that area.
