How to Plot RADAR Fixes
Use the following steps to properly plot a radar fix. Figure 8-32 is an
illustration of what a fix using three radar ranges looks like.
Locate the distance scales or the latitude scale near your
approximate location on the chart.
Measure the distance on the scale using a compass.
Locate the charted navigational point used for the range.
Place the sharp point of the compass on the chart where you
took the range and draw an arc in the vicinity of your DR
Repeat steps 2 thru 4 for all the ranges obtained.
Locate the area where the lines of position (arcs) all cross
Label the radar fix by putting a small triangle around the
intersection of the ranges, with the time of the fix noted
close to the symbol.
