Thanks for the info on JIMUM/DEPEW. What are these called actually? I know they are navigational aids of some sort. (waypoints)
These would be called "fixes," or perhaps "approach fixes" (to separate them from "en route fixes"), given that they are along the approach. Additionally, DEPEW is further classified as a final approach fix (FAF), which you can see by looking at the profile section of the approach plate and noting the cross (bold ed X that looks like a pirate map icon).
Fixes can be defined as the distance displayed by DME (distance measuring equipment), the intersection of two or more VOR radials, the intersection of a localizer and VOR radial, etc. Waypoints typically are defined by coordinates.
Do you think they will rename YOLUCK soon?
Without knowing why JIMUM was renamed to DEPEW, I have no idea if that will happen, too.
Sorry about the feed being down yesterday we lost power here for over 6 hours! Someone driving an 18 wheeler cut the corner to close right up the street and snapped off 2 power poles and ripped down a bunch of power lines. Power finally came back on late in the day but i couldnt restart the feed until this morning.
Are you saying that your scanner, PC/laptop, and cable/DSL modem are not all connect to a uninterruptible power source? Sheeesh! How did Dave let you in the front door???
(My feed isn't, either)
