    Anybody have a good web page or two for US Navy RDF info? I’ve stumbled across sites that briefly touch on it but not much detail.

    Thanks

    Actually I was going more along the lines of an ADF. I had read a page many, many moons ago about the Navy’s development of navigation systems. This was a pretty interesting account. Anyway a friend and I were talking about old navigation stuff and……well you know how it goes when two history geeks start in…..never found that page again.

    However, thanks for the second link! I had stumbled across that one a year or so ago and couldn’t remember where to find it.

    Sorry for the delayed response, work keeps getting in the way:)

    ADFs (AKA NDBs) are still in use but are slowly being phased out. Although they have their limitations they are still a reliable back-up navigation and instrument approach system.
