LORAN-C IMPLEMENTATION IN THE COASTAL CONFLUENCE ZONE

Discusses chain configurations/reconfigurations (as appropriate), coverage, accuracies and operational schedules. The expanded Loran-C grid will permit navigation fixes to 1/4 NM or better 95% of the time throughout the CCZ and use of the signals in a repeatable mode will permit returning to within 100 ft of a previously determined position throughout much of the CCZ. Detailed information concerning Loran-C coverage characteristics in the Gulf of Mexico and the Western Coast of North America are discussed, including representative examples of near shore accuracies.
