And the winner is . . . Frank Dogil, Corridor Supervisor of the AT section from NY Dutchess County 20 to the Connecticut line and Corridor Monitor of a section therein. His correct answer was "The 0-90 quadrants scale bezel is incorrect. It should read 0-90 both east and west from the north and south. I would also like to comment on the ATC Boundary Blog. This is a great place to send prospective corridor monitors to see real projects first hand…nice job."
Other honorable mentions and really well written answers are:
Bernh Lohner, corridor monitor of the Boundary between Rt. 55 and Penny Road(Nuclear Lake) in Dutchess County, NY (both sides). "I got it: The Quadrants are labeld wrong: N and S should be 0 degreesW and S should be 90 degrees. The correct layout is: N -> E goes from 0 to 90 then E to S goes from 90 to 0. The one you have goes from 0 to 90 in both cases. Happy Monitoring."
Ron Rosen (NYNJTC) "Has anyone else yet noticed that these compasses go 0-90 ascending in each quadrant, instead of going 0 to 90 N to E, 90 to 0 E to S, 0 to 90 S to W, and 90 to 0 W to N???"
Frank Klein (long-term & multi-week Konnarock volunteer) "Unless you guys are using an entirely different call system for your bearing readouts up there in Maine-New Hampshire, I'd say the whole number sequencing set up on that compass is reversed in two quadrants, NxxW, and SxxE. Should start at N or S, read the same going either E or W. So how do you guys read them, ? with a little mental gymnastics ?Thanks for the great blog, and the Wow-worthy pics......"
