8.23 VHF DIRECTION FINDING FACILITIES
Effective this date all three major airports (LGA-IDL-EWR) have available, VHF Direction Finding facilities. Coverage extends for 360ยบ for a range of 40 miles at a minimum altitude of 1500'. Certain sectors of each facility may require a higher altitude at the maximum range of 40 miles, depending on terrain or other obstacles to VHF transmissions. 

If any pilot becomes disoriented he may contact the nearest tower on tower frequency and request a VHF-DF steer inbound. The tower may assign you to another frequency to get a bearing on the helicopter. Once the tower establishes the bearing he can give you an accurate heading inbound to the station. 

For familiarization purposes you may contact EWR tower at WOR-TV and request a VHF-DF steer inbound. EWR tower will be happy to give you the practice.
