Features – Define Site
Sites for each end of radio links must be defined in Herald Pro. Herald Pro provides several ways to define a site:
1. Manual method – enter site data including coordinates into a form. Site elevation data is then retrieved from the digital elevation model (map) files
2. Import site from a Google Earth kml file. All data is automatically entered from the kml.
The following form forms are used to Add, Modify, Select sites in Herald Pro.

The site may now be selected to be used in a hop definition:
Note that sites may also be imported from ASCII files and this requires that the coordinate datum be the same as the default for the project.
