    I spent a little while correcting the NAVAID bearing of Naigationalaigorithms0f 16 Dec.2010. Here are the corrections using the Franklin Piloting Technique as in early Bowditch and taugth at navy schools. If I had the bearings and chart the correct would have been a minute or two.
    I made the chart larger,so that things may be easer to understand,The GPS shows that the Socos#2 oringinal bearing was a east error, to the right of the GPS,but in an actual fix I would not have known that, but the distance to #2 did not greatly miss the fix. This is not a bad fix for megnetic.
