scraph is on a distinguished road
009°T is 67°R (forward the starboard beam)
158°T is 216°R (port quarter)
328°T is 26°R (off the starboard bow)

The army.mil site is correct. What you want to do with the given information is: TB - SH = RB. If the result is negative, you can either consider it an angle towards port (clockwise) or you can add 360° to normalize it to a standard 0°-360° angle.
