Uhhh Roman, hard to believe, but I get the same readings as I had. It gets sort of a course deviation. If the reading is 181-360 have to subtract from the true course. If it's 0-180 then add to true course. John

Hey Bob. Thanks so much for your help. I'm getting too old for this stuff. I changed your string to this and it worked great. We were all so close but not quite there. (A:ADF Radial:2,degrees) Strange,,I left your string intact and it worked right away for ADF1. Got some strange readings for ADF2 though. Changed that little bit and it's working. Thanks again Bob and Roman. What would we old senile seniors do without all you bright fellows.John
