When I set up my electronic map to go to magnetic versus true, I noticed the correction for the general area is 12.7E. I suspect the "/13 E" means the FAA wants you to use 13 degrees of correction. I also used statute miles instead of nautical miles. I computed the locations in both manners.
"12.7" magnetic yields N37 14 10.7 W115 02 16.1
"13E" yields N37 14 25.0 W115 02 01.4
The difference is 0.3 nautical miles.
This is a spot northeast of the lower Pahranganat Lake. Again visible from the highway.
So now the English translation is:
There will be a pyrotechnic demonstration spanning 1 nautical mile over coordinates
N37 14 25.0 W115 02 01.4
at an altitude not to exceed 2000ft above ground level. The event will take place between Oct 5, 20011 at 2100 zulu (October 5th, 2PM local) through October 11th, 2011 at 0300 zulu (October 10th at 8PM). Aircraft are advised to avoid the area.
There is nothing in the Lincoln County Record (local newspaper) about this event.
