The difficulty of discussing the practical aspects of boresighting in general terms has been circumvented by writing two parallel sections - one pertaining to antennas with a fixed mechanical reference and one pertaining to antennas with adjustable optical - mechanical references
The reader is advised to concentrate first on the section that pertains most specifically to his particular antenna boresight problem. Either of Sections I or II may be read without prior knowledge of the other; they are partially repetitive when discussing overlapping material. Those antennas whose boresight reference is defined by touch points on the mounting structure are covered in Section I; those antennas having boresight telescopes are covered in Section II.
