[aprssig] PHG calculation formula?

OK, so what exactly do you do with...

power = pow(base_power, 2.00)

Comma 2.00?  Is there a function designator missing somewhere, as that
looks like you're calling a function "pow" with two indipendant values,
"base_power" and the value of 2.

And for that matter...

haat = (10 * pow(2.00, base_haat))

10 times the result of calling pow(x, y) again?

Bob's .mil and .edu sites are unavailable again, or it's the continuing
DNS colic they seem to suffer from..

	Here's the snippet that calcs it from OpenAPRS's daemon...
	  power = pow(base_power, 2.00);
	  haat = (10 * pow(2.00, base_haat));
	  gain = pow(10.00, (base_gain / 10));
	  range = sqrt((2 * haat * sqrt((power / 10) * (gain / 2))));
