Abstract : Flight tests were made with a modified Distance Measuring Equipment TACAN Interrogator (AN/ARN21) to simulate a General Aviation (Class II) type interrogator to determine whether this type of equipment with reduced output power (50 watt) and receiver sensitivity (-76 dbm) could give adequate and reliable coverage utilizing normal VORTAC facilities. Data indicate that coverage is adequate and reliable. (Author)
