OMEGA RADIONAVIGATION SYSTEM COMES TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AREA
A Very Low Frequency (VLF) system operating in the 10-14 kHz band allows navigators to obtain positional data on a worldwide and nearly continuous basis when the system is in full operation with eight transmitting stations. Even without the final station network established, adequate Omega navigation coverage is now available in large portions of the Pacific Ocean area. An important element in the operational development of the Omega system is the collection of system data through a network of monitoring stations.
