    NIMA 5090 (Manuevering Board) in pdf
    From: Michael Wescott
    Date: 2002 Jan 21, 3:05 PM

    I was not particularly happy with the quality of the JPEG version of
    this sheet especially as it prints on a letter size sheet. So I sat down
    and wrote a postscript program to print the working area (the plotting
    circle) and so get better detail. To make the result a bit more portable
    I've converted the result to PDF. Feel free to use these for personal
    use. Let me know of any errors or omissions.
    There are 2 PDF files, one for a full 10-inch diameter circle on an 11x17
    sheet. The second is scaled to fit on a 8.5x11 sheet. Each is about 624Kb
    in size (the postscript program from which they are made is only 6980 bytes
    including comments). I'll try to upgrade these with scales and nomographs
    like the original as time permits. They print well on the laser printers
    here at work, but I suspect that quality will suffer on a deskjet or similar
    device with less resolution.
    Comments or problems to wescott@conterra.com (no need to bother the list
    at large with them.
