Abstract : The report covers the development of a method of measuring DME traffic for both a DME-saturated and non-saturated TACAN site. DME traffic counts were conducted at the following Eastern Region VORTACs: LaGuardia, Robbinsville, Coyle, Kenton, Deer Park, Sea Isle, and Yardley. The LaGuardia VORTAC experienced the highest peak traffic of the VORTACs tested. The LaGuardia traffic count indicates the system is operating at 66 percent of full-load capacity during peak traffic.
