A number of them from GA through to RPT which is why l mentioned them - last one in Oz was into YPPD in a DC-9 although that was only the homing, we got visual before having to do the let-down.
Done some in the sim in more recent times for the fun of it.

The ADF needle also used to go to 9 o clock (or was it 3?)when you selected it to ANT.
It was great for increasing the range of the AM broadcast station.
Also a great gadget for finding the heart of the thunderstorm.

And twin locator ?
Story was there was an unapproved one at YPLC using the NDB at the field and the 5LN broadcast station at the town some 6 miles away that nicely lined up with RWY 01 - just hearsay of course !

I think that depended on whether the antenna was mounted on top or on bottom of the aircraft.

Cool

VAR at Kalgoorlie

Visual tracks from Perth and Forest, Aural from Norseman and Leonora or Laverton, it was 50 years ago.

Route Check stuff for DC-3 F/Os, I did 2 in the same year, not much flying on reserve those days.

What’s an ADF?
An ancient navaid that allowed you to track to Brisbane from Auckland while listening to the cricket.
