    Re: Lat/Lon by "Noon Sun" & The Noon Fix PROVE IT
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2009 Apr 17, 23:10 +0100

    Dave Walden, having generated 1000 simulations of longitude-around noon, and
    arrived at a scatter of 5.68 miles rms, as reported earlier, then turned his
    attention to the 20 simulations I had invented. He sent me the results for
    deduced lat and long. In return, I then sent him the full table showing the
    presumed lat and long that I had taken as a starting point in each case.
    Dave has then analysed the difference between my 20 initial longitudes, and
    his deduced results, arriving at a scatter in longitude of 5.81 miles rms.
    This is only marginally different from his previous finding, and completely
    compatibe with it. I see no reason to question his result.
    
    I'm having a bit of difficulty in cobbling together an amended data set to
    meet Jim Wilson's method of working, but it will come.
    
    George.
