Localizer Antenna

Asked by: 1931 views FAA Regulations

Reference KFTG: ILS or LOC RWY 17

If a localizer offers DME capability, the DME antenna is typically in the same location as the localizer.

The profile view shows “l-FZR DME Antenna”. Why would the localizer DME antenna be placed at an area other than the localizer?

Thank you for the feedback.

    Look at the KFTG: ILS or LOC RWY 35 approach. It looks like they use the same DME station for both approaches—changing the ID to match that of the localizer in use. In this case, it looks like they have two localizer stations (and antenna arrays), I-FZR and I-VWT, but they share the DME between them.
