Default GPS and Loran C

Go to www.loran.org, and click on the March 2004 Newsletter....the USCG and
FAA have signed onto an agreement to retain Loran C as a backup to GPS.

Small world. I went to an interesting talk at a NASA conference last
week http://spacecom.grc.nasa.gov/icnsconf/2004/NASA_ICNS_Conf_2004_Agenda.pdf
on GPS/Loran. The co-author gave the presentation and interstingly
enough is the president of ILA and is also from Locus. The SatMate
1030 http://www.locusinc.com/satmate.html (spec:
http://www.locusinc.com/pdf/2004SatMate1030Sheet%20with%20Logo.pdf )
is the unit they're prototyping for aviation applications. There's a
definite push to not only retain Loran but also to bring it into the
digital age

Regards,
Jon

Must have been Dr. Linn Roth. It's coming, for sure.

Yep. Good presenter and a nice guy, too. I'm not a LORAN guy by any
means, but he mentioned that a 9th pulse is being added. My
understanding is that it's a requirement for timing now that any
station has the potential to be a Master.

Regards,
Jon
