Image Number 6 for United States Patent #4071845.

A radio beacon navigation system wherein buoys placed at predetermined locations in a harbor or channel transmit identification signals. Every buoy is assigned a unique carrier frequency upon which is transmitted a signal capable of identifying the buoy.
