Determining whether or not you have found the station
The most important aspect of what kind of log or recovery report to make is determining whether or not what you did find is the correct mark. The techniques of determining whether or not you have found the station differ greatly according to the type of station in question. The following sections contain discussions on generalized types.
Make sure whether the datasheet says the mark you're looking for has a location that is scaled or adjusted. If the location is scaled, you must use the landmarks and their distances and azimuths in relation to the mark as described in the datasheet instead of looking exactly where your GPS receiver indicates.
