    Rob,  Since you mention it as a short range station, I am assuming
    that when you did the bearing corrections, you did not change them
    from great circle to rumb lines.
    I have never done RDF except academically and there were two distinct
    problems that I was given, one was on pilotage charts where bearings
    were converted with a deviation table of some sort and then longer
    range bearings (several hundred miles at least) where I was plotting
    on universal sheets and had to use the deviation tables as well as
    conversion of GC to RL bearings.
