I recently saw this NOTAM
LIBR BRINDISI VORTAC 'BRD' FREQ 113.20MHZ CH79X AVBL AS FLW:
1.VOR OPERATIVE 2.TACAN DME PART OPR, AZIMUTH PART OUT OF SER.
FLIGHT LEVEL FROM SFC TO UNL
VALID FROM 1328 22-NOV-2010 TO 1230 30-NOV-2010 EST: (M5164/10)
My question is, what exactly do they mean when they say that the VOR is operative and the TACAN DME is also but azimuth part is not. To a civilian aircraft should it work as normal and only military aircraft would be affected. Are military aircraft not be able to pick up the VOR part and have to have a separate part of the TACAN for radial finding? Would the VOR and TACAN share the same DME?
Also in relation to abbreviations on JEPP approach plates I came across this abbreviation on approach light systems, RCLM and RL, any ideas?
