Re: Compass card with more than 360 degrees

```Lu,
When I first saw the message header:
"Re: Compass card with more than 360 degrees"
I thought someone was going to bring up the Locars(SP?)Compass.
That was a Compass that got some press about 1976 or so - it went from 0
to 400 degrees - to make recprical bearings "easyer" no body got behind
it though, and it went away. FYI: I teach flying & use this neat trick for

" The 2 + 2 Methode " :

Example:
If heading is 095 what is the recip?
answer: can you add 2 to the first number and get less than 4?
if so do it and then subtract 2 from the next number the
third number will stay the same....

0   9  5
+2 -2  =
___________
2   7  5

Going back in the other direction recp of 275:

2    7   5
-2   +2   =
________________
0    9   5

It's not fool proof there is a 'dead band' between 000 & 019 degrees
that doesn't work. Try it.
-Greg
