    Byron: The above talks about CPA using the idea of Angles without Protractor . Also the side opposit works to make the Franklin Piloting accurate. The farther away from the fix for the third Navaid the more one degree spreads out to cover one degree at right angle. This means that the fix can be determed with in one degree even if the fix is inperfect. Especilly good for Magnetic compass with some random error. This idea of distance for third Navaid is hard for me to explain, If some one cand inprove on my above please send it to me.
