How can i determine if a VOR station is (H), (L) or (T)?

If the VOR is located on an airfield i know i can find that info on the AF/D in the section Radio aids to navigation of that specific airport.

The question is if i have a VOR in the middle of the desert (not in the vicinity of any airfield) how can i determine if it's a low or high altitude service volume facility? (i guess can't be Terminal)

The AIM (1-1-8 b) says there should be an alphabetical listing of all NAVAIDs on the AF/D but i can't find it.

    The navaids are listed in the main section with the airports for example the Litchfield VOR is listed after the Linden airport. http://aeronav.faa.gov/pdfs/ec_177_10JAN2013.pdf

    For the small GA aircraft that don’t go above 18,000 FT MSL, high and low VORs have the same service volume. You know on a sectional chart if it is a high or low VOR by a compass rose around the navaid. Terminal VORs do not have a compass rose.
