Default Anybody Still Use Loran?

I'm wondering whether to keep my Flybuddy or sell it.

And, btw, I think I'm immigratin' if M-14P's and Walters are THAT cheap!

I still use my Arnav 21 -- even had it upgrades with the latest database
last year.

I use my Northstar M1 every day. Works great. I even bought a spare off of
ebay just to make sure I had one that works. Been keeping an eye out for a
Northstar GPS-60 though.

You are probably better off to keep it. Used LORANs aren't fetching
that much on the market.

I still use my IIMorrow Loran nearly every flight. It is a nice
backup to GPS/VOR.

I run a C-414 with an Apollo loran. It's 8 to 10 miles inaccurate because I
fly it slightly outside the coverage area, but GPS is 3 or 4 miles
inaccurate in some spots here too. My new-hire pilots have to demonstrate
dead-reckoning for their checkride. :-)
