Abstract : An antenna array adjustable in height and azimuth aperture was tested for use in an offset marker beacon installation. Insufficient horizontal light-on pattern duration, at some offset distances, is caused by lack of power available at the antennas. The technique, however, of using offset marker antenna installations is feasible. (Author)
