For better accuracy in locating a transmitting antenna we must have three or more direction
finders taking simultaneous bearings. This is termed a FIX, or FIX AREA, and will provide the
probable location of the transmitting antenna. (See Figure 1-21).

Note that we use the terms "approximate direction", "general location", and "probable
location." This is necessary because of the many variables that affect direction finding. Your
studies of radio wave propagation will find many causes of inaccuracies In direction finding.
