INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
Figure 13
For Medicine Bow, you would set in 114.1. (Figure 13)
3. Adjust the volume control and positively identify the VOR station by its Morse code
identifier, or by listening to a recording which states the name of the navaid ("MEDICINE
BOW VOR").
Just as with the TACAN identification procedure, VORs must be properly identified or an
alternate navaid should be selected. The applicable frequencies and Morse Code identifiers can
be found where you would find similar information concerning TACANs.
VOR's can be used interchangeably with TACANS; however, two facts should be
remembered:
1. Most Navy fleet aircraft do not carry a VOR.
2. DME information is not available with only a VOR; therefore, fixing your position
utilizing VORs is considerably more time consuming and difficult.
VOR/DME
TACAN and VOR systems are independent of each other. The TACAN provides azimuth
and DME; the VOR provides only azimuth. Most civilian aircraft do not have TACAN;
however, they may have DME. A civilian aircraft can use VOR azimuth and TACAN DME
from a VORTAC facility and receive a display virtually identical to the display in a TACAN
equipped military aircraft.
