Thanks Charlie, forgive me if my question might be ametureish ..but the only sound ranging things I have ever seen are the Sound Mirrors on our coastline, do you know what they used for sound ranging in this instance? Ian.

I got very excited about the Dragon division (Drachenabteilung) before I remembered that actually Drachen = kite.
