In this flight plan:


http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N333 ... Z/74V/KMOT


There is a waypoint listed:

TCH088100

I know that TCH is a VOR but what do the numbers 088100 signify?

Thanks much for any information.

The numbers signify the bearing and range from the VOR, defining a particular point. So TCH088100 indicates a point 100 nm from the TCH VOR on the 088 radial.

Here's what that point looks like on Skyvector: http://skyvector.com/?ll=40.70035306400 ... :A.K3.KMOT
