Use and Operation of TACAN, VOR, VOR/DME
T-45C TS INav 03; ADV INav-01
(1) T (Terminal): from 1,000 ft AGL up to and including 12,000
ft AGL at radial distances out to 25 nm (will not appear on
high altitude charts)
(2) L (Low): from 1,000 ft AGL up to and including 18,000 ft
AGL at radial distances out to 40 nm
(3) H (High)
(a) From 1,000 ft AGL up to and including 14,500 ft AGL at
radial distances out to 40 nm
(b) From 14,500 ft AGL up to and including 60,000 ft AGL
at radial distances out to 100 nm
(c) From 18,000 ft AGL up to and including 45,000 ft AGL
at radial distances out to 130 nm
NOTE: Standard Service Volume limitations do not
apply to published IFR routes or procedures. (i.e.,
some published routes may exceed these limitations,
they have been flight tested and can be used with
6. Identified by aural 3-letter Morse code repeating every 35 seconds
7. Neither transmits nor receives voice communications
8. Cone of Confusion - A “cone of confusion” where TACAN azimuth
information is not available, exists over TACAN stations. The
“cone” varies from 60o to 110o wide. TACAN DME and I.D. signal
will be received and station passage will be noted by minimum
DME. Although narrow at low altitudes, this “cone” expands to
about 18 nm across at 30,000 ft. Because of the size of the
TACAN “cone of confusion”, TACAN holding patterns will always be
established using DME
B. VOR
1. Unaffected by weather
2. 360 radials emitted from station
3. Provides magnetic radial
4. Operates in the VHF band (108.0-117.95 MHz) - 59 available
frequencies
