Abstract:

This report deals with the calibration analyses of the First District Shore Navigation Direction Finder Stations. The importance of coast line and local conditions on deviations as reported by other investigators is reviewed, discussed and summarized. Following this, an analysis is made of the deviation and balance curves from each of the six shore stations, from which evidence is obtained pointing to the most probable cause of the more serious and frequently the more unstable deviation influences. Of considerable assistance in analyzing the data has been the Polar Method of plotting the normal deviation curves and the Station Layout on the same sheet.
