This one stumped both myself and my CFI. Im specifically asking about the minimums at KALB IL/LOC 19 but a general answer is also appreciated.
The plate lists two distinct sets of minimums and we were confused about the S-LOC 19 minimums. The first set seems like the obvious regular ones and takes you to the labeled step down altitude. Then there is a second set for WESTS FIX MINIMUMS that are lower to the first set.
What is this second of set of minimums for and how can they be utilized?
It seems a bit odd that they reference an altitude below the step altitude. Presumably you fly 820 to 0.7 on the DME, but yet the WESTS FIX MINIMUMS seem to allow for lower than this.
