The VOR compass here has an arrow that points to the north east. I never saw an VOR compass like that. What is the explanation?
From ICAO SARPS Annex 4:
This is due to the magnetic declination, which varies from place to place, as well as over time.
Note that VOR stations are typically not realigned over time, so discrepancies may arise with respect to the ever changing magnetic north, but in radio navigation a radial is just that – drawn over a chart, and tuned to, it will always be the same.
