Abstract : The characteristics of electromagnetic field in the area near the radio-range beacon are analysed, pointing out the audibility zones. Thus the degree of accuracy in determining the bearings of the beacons is increased. A comparison among various radio-range beacons (Stavanger, Ploneis, Bushmills) shows the variations of accuracy when determining a ship's location in various sectors and the means of improving the accuracy. The development of the improved consolan type of sector radio-range beacons, which was discussed at the International conference on ocean navigation in 1954-1955, is also outlined. (Author)
