An h.f. direction finder consisting of two orthogonal simple interferometers was built and tested by making over 16000 direction-of-arrival measurements. This paper describes the performance of the system, giving ambiguity-resolution figures and bearing-accuracy results. An error-reduction factor of about 4 times was obtained over narrow-aperture systems operating in similar wave-interference fields.
