How  to  Set  Up  the  PMP,  Continued - 14221_82
How  to  Set  Up  the  PMP Note The  PMP  is  normally  set  up  to  automatically  compensate  for gyrocompass  error.    The  error  may  be  "dialed  in";  this  allows  the  LOPs and  course  lines  to  be  plotted  without  correction. Follow  these  steps  to  set  up  the  PMP.  See  figures  2-16  and  2-17  on  the next  page  to  see  what  the  scale  looks  like  with  0°  gyro  error  and  also with  gyro  error  dialed  in. Step 1. 2. 3. 4. Action Tape  the  chart  you  are  using  onto  the  chart  table  by its comers. Take  the  PMP  out  of  its  storage  box. Place  the  mounting  plate  inside  the  anchor  plate and  tighten  the  anchor  screw  to  secure  the  PMP  to the  chart  table. Attach  the  ruler  to  the  PMP  by  placing  the  ruler  on the  table  and  sliding  it  into  the  attachment  arm. 5. Unlock  both  the  protractor  and  the  scale  locks. 6. 7. Twist  the  handle  to  align  the  ruler  with  the  latitude line on the chart. Rotate  the  bearing  scale  to  the  appropriate  position. IF gyro error is...  THEN align the scale . . . Zero To  the  0°  index  mark Westerly To  the  index  mark  on  the  scale  to the  left  of  zero,  equal  to  the amount  of  gyro  error Easterly To  the  index  mark  on  the  scale  to the  right  of  zero,  equal  to  the amount  of  gyro  error 8. Lock  the  bearing  scale  using  the  protractor  lock switch. 2-27
