AbstractGeneral problems concerning the choice of system for direction finding in the HF band (3-30 mc/s) are outlined. Specific requirements which determine such characteristics as speed of response, sensitivity, selectivity, and data storage are discussed. Outstanding problems in the design of a twin-channel system and the steps taken to meet them are described. Some over-all performance characteristics of the AN/GRD-501 system are given, together with a brief analysis of errors commonly encountered in HF direction finding.
