    Ken, I wanted to mention to you & your company that if you felt you could make it worth your while:Come to the Air Force Navigators Observers Association (details are on www.afnoa.org ) reunion and set up a table/booth to sell whatever you feel they might buy.

    The AFNOA Reunion is at Las Vegas this Sep 6-7-8 and the Director Col. Jim Rowland USAF Ret. ( james.rowland@tstc.edu ) of the Aero Program at Texas State Technical College is the head speaker. TSTC is located at the old James Connally AFB at Waco,

    As of this moment we do not have a good head count on attendance... but normally about 200. May get more as we folded the Texas Navs into AFNOA last year and they normally draw about 250. Then too,,, Las Vegas?

    At the Reunion AFNOA always has an  "author's table" for the navs to sell their books. Fun sales.

    Our best too you, Ron Barrett, AFNOA President & Historian  ( www.ronbarrett.com )

    Sorry to say Celestaire has no more Polhemus Computers.

    It is a joy to use since it makes plotting the LOPs a snap.

    You can see more about it here:


    and here:

    you can also search "Polhemus" on this om this board.

    I have never heard of the Polhemus computer. There is a way to plot the LOP on the windface of the E6-B. That method is explained in 51-40.

    The AF taught the intercept method so that is what we did.

    Is the Polhemus computer available through Celestaire?
