A dot is drawn to signify the position of the gun. In order that higher headquarters can determine where the gun is located on the ground, the sketch is oriented (see figures 6-39 and 6-40). The gun position can be positively located by an 8-digit grid coordinate. Finally, the range card is signed by writing down the gun number, unit designation, and date. For security reasons, no higher unit designation than the company is shown. A separate range card is made for an alternate position. The cards are clearly marked, indicating either primary or alternate position.
