Abstract : This report covers a survey which was conducted at 103 radio (avionics) repair stations throughout the United States on various models of signal generators used for the calibration of VOR, Localizer, and glide slope airborne navigation receivers. The survey includes data from four different models of VOR signal generators, four different models of localizer signal generators, and four different models of glide slope signal generators. A statistical analysis is presented which enables prediction of error distributions for radio navigation test equipment used in radio repair stations. The report contains a description of the survey, discussion of the results, and recommends possible action to improve present avionics test equipment calibration methods used in the radio repair stations.
