Ah, I didn't read back over the posts. When I got my dispatcher's ticket, my FAA examiner for my oral exam was new and had only done ATPs at this level. I was his first Dispatcher (same written and questions as ATP). I had a new electronic E6B and when I whipped it out he asked me if I had a prayer wheel. I told him no, that this is what I used. He asked what would happen if the battery went dead. I told him that I'd walk downstairs to TWA's gift shop and buy a new battery.
