(32SII) Position, Distance & Bearing Calculations
ALL
An HP32SII program for Position, Distance & Bearing Calculations with respect to great circle calculations is presented in the appendix of a technical paper by Whitham D. Reeve entitled Position, Distance & Bearing Calculations at Reeve_PosDistBrngCalcs.pdf. As the paper has a ©, only a reference to the paper is presented. BEST! SlideRule

RE: (32SII) Position, Distance & Bearing Calculations
Thanks for sharing that document.
I have recently moved my greatcircle calculations from Free42 to a Bash script running on a Raspberry Pi. Just a mere interface to proj4's geod and invgeod programs. Besides, gpsbabel handles the output in KML and GPX formats. For the calculations in the script, I love to use the venerable RPN 'desktop calculator' in Unix, aka dc :0) Saludos Saluti Cordialement Cumprimentos MfG BR + + + + + Luigi Vampa + Free42 BlackviewA7 '<3' I + + +

I wonder if anyone has the source document from Radio Engineering Guide (1995) the 32sII program was adapted from? BEST! SlideRule ps: the reference doc is Chapter 11. KFactor, Radio Horizon & Earth's Radius @ Reeve_RadioEngineeringGuide.
