LORAN-C CYCLE MATCHING OPERATIONAL EVALUATION IN NORTH PACIFIC AREA

A Loran-C cycle matching receiver, (Teledyne Model TDL-302) was evaluated during normal aircraft service as a potential replacement for Loran-A. The system was installed on a Continental Air Lines/Air Micronesia 727-100 aircraft and data were collected in the North Pacific Area primarily between Honolulu and Guam. The program results indicate that Loran-C is a satisfactory substitute for Loran-A in the evaluation area. In most cases, the coverage was much more adequate than the present Loran-A coverage. The Loran-C system under evaluation will require much less crew attention than the present Loran-A system.
