VOR waypoint with numbers

In this flight plan:

flightaware.com/live/flight/N333 … Z/74V/KMOT

There is a waypoint listed:


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: skyvector.com/?ll=40.70035306400 … :A.K3.KMOT

OK, thanks very much for the information.
