Dunno about that. The radio commercials claim something like 98% accuracy at
160 WPM. That's about two errors per minute, which is unacceptable to me.

Well, no. But anyone who can make themselves understood by ATC and survive for his number of years can't be totally vocally challenged. Can they?

Well, me too. But how fast is Radny typing, and whats the error rate now? 98% might be an improvement... :-)

Of course, his current messaging just adds character to the messages and brings a smile to my face. If it ain't broke don't fix it?

typing course" and I told him I had one, "right here on the floor besides me"

Mavis Beacon




Back in the 20's the Royale Trype Writer Company was making a foray into airborne navigation. One of their technicians, James B. Mavis, a former locksmyth who became key bored, developed a series of radio beacons that were the forerunner of the A/N range, and became know as the Mavis Beacons.....

The first series was installed in the vicinity of Ramona, California and were known far and wide as the lost Ramona Mavis Beacon. Aviators who became skilled at entering the proper type of Beacon frequencies and maintained the proper course, we said to have taken the Mavis Beacon typing course.
