    Hello Greg,


    Brute force method results :

    Not knowing position at all, get 2 possible positions :

    S24°39'5 W148°43'3 and N34°10'6 W 119°14'7

    From the latter position and with standard LOP's, get observed position at N34°10'7 W119°14'7

    Excellent fix for just 2 bodies and no averaging, yielding an observed/computed position less than 0.7 NM away from GPS fix (N34°10'2 W119°14'7)

    Good (Job) on you ! I see I have not used the recommended computing method, but got one result though ...

    Thanks and Best regards

    Kermit
