The coords for this cache belong to Paine field VOR The first person to find and take a picture of PAEs VOR, I will use in this cache and give due credit.
|VOR & VORTAC: "Very High Frequency Omnidirectional Range"
NDBs : "Non Directional radio Beacon"
(RP) IFR Reporting pionts: You can locate them on High/low altitude IFR charts. Find the spot on the ground and score a find.
Have you ever wanted to know how aircraft navigated in 0ft visibility before GPS? Have you ever wanted to know where on the ground a Nav/aid was located? Here is your chance to log a find of a Nav/Aid. I am also looking for intersections and or reporting check points on the ground of Low and High altitude Federal airways. Here is a source that might help you AirNav: Navaid Information
Some Nav/aids are on private land, atop of mountains, at airports, on top of building, on Islands, Most have a fence around tower. Use common sense, sometimes you can not get very close to the nav/aid. You may use the published coords and or your own, depending on the placement of the NAV/AID. I will except any log that shows you and the NAV/AID in the forground
This is a locationless Geocache. Please post any nice bits of info that you learn when you went out to look for the cache.
- First words of your log must be the type of "nav/aid", or "Reporting check point" and ID
- Give the coords of your cache find
- Post a picture of you and the physical ground base nav/aid in the back or foreground
- If it is a Intersection or Reporting point, take a picture of you and the general area with coords.
- One log per person, each location can be logged only once.
- If you do not have a camera and have a cache in mind post the required info, you have one week to post a picture or it will be up for grabs.
Have fun and good times.
