by aligning the 1st marker with the 1st graticule line and
noting the displacement of the 9th marker from the 9th
graticule line. (The INT REF FREQ control must be turned
to the initial on position to make this frequency check.)
There should be no noticeable difference in the postion of
the marker with the position noted in step e.
