    Craig-
     
    
    Nothing is wrong, it is only deceptively imprecise. The single tick character 
    which you read as <> is in more common use the character read as 
    <>. I forgot that in the context of this list the single tick could be 
    read different ways.
    
    The statement is <<100 feet>> not 100 minutes, and it is neither latitude nor 
    longitude but rather the diagonal measurement based on the offset of both 
    latitude and longitude, ignoring any elevation offset.
