Re: Magnetic Variance

Ok, I think I've got this. No problem remembering T V M D C. I'm using "West is best, East is least." I'm going to type some random givens, figure the rest, and let you guys tell me how I did. Laughter is accepted, name calling only if you correct me. Here goes....

Given: True bearing 284, Variance 2*W, Deviation 5*E

T 284* V 2*W M 286* D 5*E C 281*

Given: Magnetic bearing 357*, True bearing 005*, Deviation 5*W

T 005* V 8*E M 357* D 5*W C 002*

Given: Compass bearing 162*, Magnetic bearing 157*, Variance 23* W

T 134* V 23*W M 157* D 5*W C 162*


I see now why there are so many mnemonics floating around out there. You just have to find one that clicks for you!

Edit: The dentist rescheduled so I can work on this all day long! WooHoo!!
