    I have noticed several bearings of 94 degrees, 99 degrees, from my QTH listed as ENE. Shouldn't 90 degrees to 179 degrees be ESE?

    Well, it ain't ENE, that's true. The 94 degree bearing is basically E, and the 99 degree bearing is EbS (east by south).

    Google "boxing the compass" for more detail, but be prepared to get dizzy.

    I guess the important question is; are they referring to magnetic north as Zero degrees or geographical north??

    Ether way it's seems strange to label ninety four degrees as east north east.
