INTERFERENCE AND NOISE IN AND ADJACENT TO THE LORAN-C SPECTRUM AT AIRPORTS

Electrical noise and interference in the LORAN-C frequency band was measured at two rural airports in Vermont and a major airport in Boston, Mass. The purpose of the test program was to determine the potential interfering sources that could affect the proper operation of the radio navigational system, LORAN-C, when it is used for non-precision approaches and terminal and en route navigation. Although no significant interference was observed, several continuous wave transmissions were identified in the frequency band adjacent to the LORAN-C band. (Author)
