New View Shed Receiver Elevation Capability

I use the view shed tool extensively in my Doppler lidar work, but I really could use an additional option in the Reveiver Elevation. Since I am using a lidar, my beam angle is very small, but I am interested in knowing where the beam passes through an area between X and Y meters above the terrain while scanning at a fixed elevation angle. The last option currently almost works (I set the transmission angle to be very narrow), but I really need a range of heights above the surface.

So in other words, I would like to specify a fixed transmission angle and a range of heights above the ground for the receiver (which in my case is simply aerosols in the air).

Any chance this could be added?
