Use Google Earth to visualize the terrain between a repeater and your QTH

Pin two locations in Google Earth and use the tools/ruler to draw a line between them. Then right click on the line you have drawn and select "Show Elevation Profile.

If you're unsure of a repeater's location, you can copy the lat/lon from RFinder or other repeater database and paste them into Earth.
