Abstract : The textbook for radio engineering higher institutions of learning and departments explains the operating principles of radio navigational aids used to navigate flying vehicles. General questions concerned with the accuracy of navigational fixes obtained near the earth, as well as in cosmic space, are reviewed. Attention is focused on amplitude, phase, frequency and time radio navigation measurements. An analysis is made of the errors occuring in radio navigational aids resulting from the use of other than modern equipment, from the effect of the conditions under which radio waves are propagated, and from the effect of the conditions under which radio waves are propagated, and from the effect of natural and organized radio interference.
