I can supply a reasonably complete set of digital terrain data for the
eastern sea board in DTED level 1 format (which is fine for radio line of
sight work). I also have the c code to load the data and produce height
profiles :) I may even be able to provide code to spit out path losses
between two points (I need to double check copyright on that).

What I don't have lots of is time :) 
The data is about 500mb worth, if someone is interested I will look into
making up a web frontend to the data and algorithms (right now I have a java
based app).
