Counting pages is not accurate for measuring chart length as there are approximately 4" gaps between the liaison pages and the special. I removed the stage summary/weighpoint notes and there has also been editing in the form of cutting/pasting course corrections that effect length.

Hi BC61 and many many thanks for the info...
I really appreciate it
As I said for some reason these RB's are impossible to track unless someone has been there.... Anyways back to my calculator...
Indeed page number may be a little misleading but I always compensate on my calculations using a certain allowance
(usually I add 23 meters to compensate). Therefore you say 37 pages (which in theory ibased on my own generated graphs is equal to approx 7.76 meters/
25.4 feet or
32mm roll or
222 tulips  that is if we have no gaps at all). I can safely say that I have more than 160% allowance at the moment so we are on the right track (may be we are on the left, have to think about it
) as far as the transmission goes...
Back to the lab...
