In order to measure the radial from a VOR, the aircraft VOR receiver

A: uses pulse technique to determine the radial.
B: measures the time difference between reception of the two signals transmitted from the ground installation.
C: measures the phase difference between the reference phase and the variable phase of the signal.
D: measures the time difference between sending the interrogation signal and receiving the transponder signal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: C

If VOR bearing information is used beyond the designated operational coverage, errors could be caused by:

A: sky wave interference from distant transmitters on the same frequency
B: noise from precipitation static exceeding the signal strength of the transmitter
C: sky wave interference from the same transmitter
D: interference from other transmitters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer: D

Given: SHA VOR (N5243.3 W00853.1) DME 50 NM, CRK VOR (N5150.4 W00829.7) DME 41 NM, Aircraft heading 270(degrees)(M), Both DME distances increasing. What is the aircraft position?”
