Abstract : Navigation section of Radio Group, Electronics Research Laboratory was required to investigate the behaviour of the Australian Omega transmissions within Australia. This paper reports the approach used to undertake this investigation at points within the area of modal interference and the results obtained. Conclusions are drawn on the efficacy of using the Omega Australia transmissions in the differential mode in the areas investigated and comment is made on the use of differential Omega for land navigation in Australia drawing also on the results of trials reported previously. Keywords: Omega navigation, Surface navigation, and Navigational aids.
