    Re: Multiple LOP using one sun sight

       I see the problem with my initial plan due to parallel azimuths.  Got so
    excited when I had an accurate fix in experimenting I lost track of critical
    thought.  Must have miscalculated azimuth somewhere.  Not the first time.
    Back to practice.  Thanks for your patience with this young pup.  Promise to
    put more thought into future posts.
       Shot star sights last night from the beach- fix was 5 n.m. off my actual
    position.  First time in awhile I've been more than 1 n.m. off.  At first
    was attributing it to the fog bank sitting far offshore which blurred up an
    already rapidly darkening horizon.  Then I got home and realized my digital
    wristwatch (that I had synchronized right before my sights) was inexplicably
    6 seconds fast.  Of course I found this out only after I put the headphones
    on my shortwave, turned it on and nearly blew out both eardrums (thanks to
    my nephew)  Multiple agencies working against me.
                                                                 Clear horizons,
                                                                  T. Shanklin
