Abstract : Ground and airborne tests of flight inspection marker beacon receiving system were made to identify and correct variations in marker pattern measurement from time to time and from aircraft to aircraft. The tests were made with both the T-29 Convair and DC-3 aircraft. Based on the flight test results, new receiver calibration and antenna system ramp calibration procedures have been devised.
