Convert propagated range to target height

returns the target height `tgtht`

= range2height(`r`

,`anht`

,`el`

)`tgtht`

as a function of the propagated range
`r`

, the sensor height `anht`

, and the local
elevation angle `el`

assuming a Curved Earth Model with a 4/3 effective Earth
radius.

specifies additional inputs using name-value arguments. For example, you can specify a flat
Earth model, a curved Earth model with a given radius, or a CRPL Exponential Reference Atmosphere Model with custom
values.`tgtht`

= range2height(`r`

,`anht`

,`el`

,`Name=Value`
