    Re: Death to the Intercept Method!

    Once we decide that we are OK with electronic methods of calculation, then we can pick a platform on which all the complicated formulae and rules can be programmed once, and then just use that - (with the caveat that a pocket calculator may be the only gadget that will run on ambient light, if all other batteries are dead).

    Following up on Sean C’s recommendation about the NA method:

    For an example of plotting LOPs on graph paper by means other than the intercept method, see:
