AMPLIFYING    REPORT An amplifying report is made when any change occurs or more accuracy can be given to a previous report. Such cases include when the ship or aircraft alters course or changes speed. These changes can be detected by the human eye much faster than with electronic devices. when  a  more  positive  identification  can  be made. You can now see what the nationality of the ship is, or its hull number, or other identifying features. when  anything  unusual  occurs.  A  ship  may sound  its  whistle,  make  smoke,  drop  the  anchor, display additional lights, and so forth. Range  Estimation A range in yards for each contact reported would be invaluable, but estimating ranges over water is very difficult   for   the   inexperienced   lookout   because distances  are  deceptive.  Only  with  a  lot  of  on-the-job experience will you become proficient in estimating ranges to contacts. Question CIC concerning the radar ranges to visual contacts and compare them with your estimated range. The  only  readily  available  reference  point  you can   use   when   estimating   ranges   is   the   horizon. Knowing   your   height   above   the   waterline   will help   you   estimate   ranges   because   the   distance to  the  horizon  varies  with  the  height  of  the  eye. 23
