line is for longitude. A user-defined VOR is stored as
an Undefined (U) class. Refer to Figure 3-32.

(3) Creating A User-Defined NDB Waypoint.
A user-defined NDB waypoint must contain an
identifier, latitude and longitude. An NDB frequency
may be stored. The procedure for creating an NDB
user waypoint is similar to that described for creating
an airport user waypoint. Begin by selecting the NDB
waypoint type pages. The NDB identifier can be one
to three characters in length. An NDB user waypoint
page contains the user identifier at the top of the page
and three lines of dashes. The top line of dashes may
be filled in with the NDB frequency. The second line is
for latitude and the third line is for longitude. Refer to
(4) Creating User-Defined Intersection or
Supplemental Waypoints. A user-defined intersection
or supplemental waypoint must contain an identifier,
latitude, and longitude. The identifier for either can be
one to five characters in length. There are two
procedures which may be used to define these
waypoints. Both procedures begin by selecting the
INT or SUP type waypoints, as appropriate.

The first method is similar to that described for
creating an airport, VOR, or NDB user waypoint. The
second method is to define the waypoint's position in
terms of a radial and the distance from any other
published or previously defined user waypoint.
Entering the reference waypoint, radial,
and distance is done only to define the
waypoint's latitude and longitude position.
distance are not stored as part of the user
waypoint. As soon as another page is
viewed on the right side, these parameters
are lost. If a waypoint page for a user-
waypoint is viewed later on, it will display
the radial and distance from the VOR
nearest the user-defined waypoint. The
original reference point may be reentered
at any time.
