    Position Line Slide Rules: Bygrave, HR1, HR2, MHR1
    From: Ronald van Riet
    Date: 2008 Sep 30, 00:24 -0700

    Just over a week ago, I presented a paper on the Bygrave and HR series
    at an international meeting of slide rule collectors. Because the
    Bygrave has been discussed several times in this newsgroup as well, I
    thought it would be useful to make it available to all group members
    here as well.
    The pdf can be found at http://fer3.com/arc/img/PositionLineSlideRules.pdf
    Please note that I have tried to keep the discussion of celestial
    navigation to the minimum necessary to understand the operation of the
    Bygrave, so it is from a navigation standpoint highly incomplete and
    possibly incorrect, but please bear in my mind that the target
    audience was slide rule collectors, NOT navigation enthusiasts.
    I do hope many of you will find this paper interesting: if you have
    any additional information, such as serial numbers of items in your
    possession, please send them to me off list to be included in future
    versions of this paper.
