BODE

Description
Draw azimuth lines/elevation rings at a point.
Uses 20 comma-delimited parameters.
Syntax
BODE 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20

The BODE command has these parts:

Parameter Description
1 Latitude of center point (±DD portion)
2 Latitude of center point (MM portion)
3 Latitude of center point (SS portion)
4 Longitude of center point (±DDD portion)
5 Longitude of center point (MM portion)
6 Longitude of center point (SS portion)
7 Distance from center to start azimuth lines (NM)
8 Distance from center to end azimuth lines (NM)
9 Increment used to generate azimuth lines (NM)
10 Azimuth lines drawn every field 10 degrees
11 Altitude of vehicle for elevation rings (NM)
12 Height of center point above sea level (feet)
13 Elevation angle to start elevation rings
14 Elevation angle to end elevation rings
15 Elevation angle increment for elevation rings (degs)
16 Angular increment used to generate rings (degs)
17 Tick marks placed every field 17 NM on azimuth lines
18 Azimuth for tick marks (degs)
19 Angle from north to start lines and rings
20 Angle from north to stop lines and rings
Remarks
An empty numeric parameter field = 0.

Parameters 17 and 18 are required as place holders, their contents are NOT USED by MicroCAM.
Example
BODE 38,,,77,,,500,3000,30,10,,,,,,,,,330,30
Draws azimuth lines starting 500 NM from the center point at 38°N, 77°W out to 3000 NM at 10 intervals from 330° to 30°
