    In simple terms, what is the difference between running fix & walking fix? I have never heard of the latter.

    You said:

    "The walking fix is superior as regards clutter on the chart and labor,
    since each LOP is plotted only once"

    This is true but the navigator should maintain the intersection angle knowledge of the original LOP. A 30* intersection will not provide the confidence of a 90* intersection.
