Abstract : The report contains results of the AN/MRN-7/8 ILS station evaluation at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, during the period 16-28 April 1975. Ground evaluation revealed a poorly maintained facility. Maintenance actions required to correct the many out of tolerance conditions prior to the flight evaluation are detailed in the report. Flight evaluation revealed exceptionally good structure and smooth transitions on both the localizer and glide slope. Siting of both facilities is nearly ideal, as is borne out by the flight results. These facilities are capable of providing extremely good service if maintained within applicable T.O. tolerances. The data presented in this report can be used as a valid guide to anticipated performance until there is a significant change in the ground equipment or until a change occurs in the siting environment.
