Overall tower height above ground level:

You will need the elevation for the site. This can be obtained through using Google Earth.

If the antenna is going on the roof of a building or on another structure (such as a water tower or tank) that has been registered with the FAA, enter the height of the building, tank or tower under "Supporting Structure Height" and the actual antenna (above the roof/top of the structure) under "Tower Height".

If the antenna is going on a free standing tower, leave the "Supporting Structure Height" value at 0 (zero) and enter the tower height (including the antenna height at the tip of the tower) in the "Tower height" field.

Click on ["Determine Runway Slope"] and the tool will look at each runway and determine if FAA notification may be required.
