VOR Question

VOR Question

On sectional charts some VOR's have compass roses and others do not. What is the offical reason why there is a difference?

Re: VOR Question

Not sure if this is the official reason but some vor's are not necessarily part of victor airways but they are used to help locate intersections. Not having a compass rose, this may also help to avoid chart clutter.

Re: VOR Question

I've never noticed a VOR without a compass rose other than in highly congested areas covered by a Terminal chart.  I think there were a couple like that that were on the TAC but just the VOR was shown on the sectional....not sure I don't have that backwards.

On the other hand, who cares.....GPS baby.....just kidding
