DME can be used in the published missed, but does not have to be. There are other ways to identify the missed approach fix.
The missed approach instructions are:
MISSED APPROACH: Climb to 1500 then climbing right turn to 3500 on ATL VORTAC R-005 to TROYS INT/ATL 15 DME and hold.
The missed approach procedure calls for a hold at the TROYS intersection. This can be identified by one of three means:
- The intersection of the ATL R-005 and RMG R-115,
- By 15 DME on the ATL R-005, or
- By RNAV from a database.
These multiple methods of identification mean that DME is not required. If an RNAV or dual VOR receivers are used, DME is not needed.
