    Hi Henry, Blue Azimuth Tables are HO 120 formerly HO 261 circa 1940
    which I have a copy.

    > The Blue Azimuth Tables (HO ?) which extended the above for higher declinations
    > Cugles Two Minute Azimuth Tables which were popular in the US MM during WWII

    calculate the azimuth - why, I could never imagine.
