Tracy Shrier's recent flight nav example using the Polhemus Celestial Computer adds to earlier examples posted by Gary LaPook and the one provided in the Polhemus manual itself. These examples are a real help to anyone learning to use this device, they are much appreciated.
In recreating Polhemus flight examples, one question sticks in my mind - is it intended for air navigation in the northern hemisphere only or can it be used in the southern hemisphere by appropriately reversing the device's correction signs to Coriolis, Wander and Rhumb Line?
