Abstract:

Flight tests were made with a modified Distance Measuring Equipment TACAN Interrogator ANARN21 to simulate a General Aviation Class II type interrogator to determine whether this type of equipment with reduced output power 50 watt and receiver sensitivity -76 dbm could give adequate and reliable coverage utilizing normal VORTAC facilities. Data indicate that coverage is adequate and reliable. Author
