    Re: Determining the center of the cocked hat

    The Army note has to be in error. IF all LOPS pass to the right or left and
    they are within 180. How could you be in the triangle.
    I used my Franklin Piloting Tecnique tosee if I could get a fix out of their
    non fix bearings I printed the bearing on to a sheet of paper. Using a protractor I read off the bearings. I use the general placing of the good bearing example above on thier folder to set the A ,B,C, radio finding station at the end of each bearing. That gave me the stations and the cocked hat of the bearings. I used the small intersection of A&B for my Fix and took a bearing from my fix to C finding a five degree EAST error.
    ( the LOP passed to the fix, right,East Error must add to correct.)
    I replotted for a 3 pointer and the correct position. I can not believe they
    use the Bisection or Steiner Point to find the best position.
