Title: Wait a second ...
Post by: gbb483 on 24-Jun-2014, 19:12:31
I've just been looking at the UK web site for Notams and comparing one of them against the TNP file generated by Spine.  There is a PJE at Little Rissington, the web site puts it at 51 51 50 N 001 41 28 W.  Spine is producing a file where the seconds have been rounded off (51 52 00 N 001 41 00 W).  Given that some references are now being given to 1 decimal place in the seconds field, I'd prefer to not have the seconds rounded off the references.

TITLE=H2217/14 PJE
BASE=SFC
TOPS=12000ALT
CIRCLE RADIUS=12 CENTRE=N515200 W0014100

I'm going to have to do this Notam by hand anyway, its defined as a cone with different radius circles at different heights, but Spine is only giving me a circle with the maximum radius at the maximum height :

TITLE=H2217/14 PJE-1
BASE=SFC
TOPS=2000ALT
CIRCLE RADIUS=2 CENTRE=N515150 W0014128
TITLE=H2217/14 PJE-2
BASE=2000ALT
TOPS=5000ALT
CIRCLE RADIUS=7 CENTRE=N515150 W0014128
TITLE=H2217/14 PJE-3
BASE=5000ALT
TOPS=8000ALT
CIRCLE RADIUS=8 CENTRE=N515150 W0014128
TITLE=H2217/14 PJE-4
BASE=8000ALT
TOPS=12000ALT
CIRCLE RADIUS=12 CENTRE=N515150 W0014128

I was looking for this in Spine's airspace file without success, then I see it's been added by Notam. I will look into the rounding of seconds which shouldn't be happening. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
