The distance field in the upper left corner always displays
34.5 nm (or 63.9 km). If the KLN 89(B) is interfaced to a
compatible indicator that displays DME distance, the indicator
should be displaying 34.5 nautical miles.

HSI or a course deviation indicator (CDI), the deviation bar (D-

indicate a bearing to the station of 130 degrees.
