When tracking towards a VOR you set the course towards the VOR (ie in the direction the aircraft is heading) irrespective of whether the Radial you are on is the TO or FROM radial. When tracking from the VOR you set the course away from the VOR (ie in the direction the aircraft is heading) irresoective of whether the radial is To or FROM radial.Hope this helps.e.g.If you are heading towards a VOR from the North and are on the 360 Radial, then you must set the course to 180.Peter
