Precisely.

My apologies for the confusion: perhaps I shouldn't have used a black
rectangle on a black background to obfuscate the location.

The reported altitude at my location (which is just a few km outside
downtown Bern) is plausible. After additional surveys it shows as
being closer to 620m.

Cheers!
