awesome find!

I actually train my GTM's to DF with the volume turned off (with the sticks), and instead focus on needle deflection.  I just can not find another way to get people to accept the notion that signal strength and volume are independent factors of each-other.  That said, a carrier only search is no big deal for them because they never got the preconceived notion that they have to hear the sweeps to find the target.

Heh - as I've pointed out on a number of occasions, I am the worst kind of insurgent - the one who fights from within and looks like a team player.

That doc was found floating around several years ago, and I have been meaning to scan and distribute it for about 5 years.   Last night I went to grab something else, found the folder and said "about time".

Hmm.  Partly how I have managed to finally nearly secure CAP as has been planned for some years now.  Now nearly all I need is the flag with the big stars and everything will be in order.

Thanks!  If you don't mind I'll distribute the link among my Alaska and NESA Ground Team students.

I like the overall guide. It did overlook an important factor in RDF, which is that the quality of the sound of an indirect or multipath signal has a "furry" characteristic to the sound ( even with just a dead carrier). Making bearing validations by sound quality is a more advanced skill, but you can teach it to Cadets if you set up your test range in the right terrain.  Even though the information is ancient, its still a pretty good basic RDF course outline.

Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."
