EFFECTS OF SCATTERING BY OBSTACLES IN THE FIELD OF VOR/DVOR

Computer programs are presented and described for calculating course scalloping caused by obstacles consisting either of arbitrary configurations of thin wires in the field of a VOR/DVOR or metallic bodies-of-revolution such as water tanks or silos in the field of a conventional VOR. The programs are user-oriented in that the instructions and data input requirements are simple. Examples are included and sample outputs are given with the program listings.
