Antenna Bearings and Distances

Map with range rings

Map courtesy of AZ_PROJ by NA3T and NV3Z. (Each ring is 50 mi or 80 km apart.)

Maps will take from 30 sec - 5 mins on an unloaded server, depending on the amount of information plotted. Microsoft IE may time out after 3 mins.

Magnetic Declination (Variation)

Magnetic Declination, sometimes called Variation (especially in the aircraft world), is the difference between True North and Magnetic North. It is expressed in the number of degrees difference between the two directions and on which side of True North you will find Magnetic North.

(Declination was calculated on the NOAA National Geophysical Data Center web page at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomagmodels/Declination.jsp)
