What Are The Range Thresholds.
« on: April 12, 2023, 10:39:41 PM »
Just to make sure Iím not thinking about it because bow I am. When does 1000K become 800K? Is it at the change from 1,000K to 999K? Is it the switch from 801K to 800K? Or is it somewhere in between?

So on down the line all the way to you passed the plane K. Oopsie!  :joystick:

Iirc the change happens at the distance displayed.  So if it says the are 800 out then they are between 800-601, once they get to 600 it will display 600 until they are 400 out.

And just to be clear they are not 1000k, or 800k, they are 1.0k, or 800. The k signifies 1000. The distance is yards, so a plane 1.0k above you is actually 3,000 feet above you.

Hope that helps.

I don't think I have ever seen that one. Isn't maximum travel distance depending on plane speed and altitude (air density)?

 I thought there was a table,30mm and under and for the 37mm and larger.

IIRC it was a timed thing multiplied by MV. Something like 2.2 seconds come to mind.


  I could be wrong,heavens knows my mind has been elsewhere lately.
