Ten-Second Fire Location
Abstract:Use of vertical angles to locate fires is not new. The principles involved have been dealt with by others working on this problem in the West. Limitation in the use of vertical angles results from flat topography, lack of accurate topographic maps, and difficulty in training lookouts to prepare and use devices for this purpose. The author describes a "locator" that is relatively simple to construct and use wherever adequate topographic maps are available.
