NEW LORAN-C SETS DISPLAY LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE

Loran-C, a hyperbolic radio navigation system, uses shore-based transmitters and easily operated shipboard receivers to enable ships at sea to determine their position. Because it operates at a low frequency, the Loran-C signal carries well in land and is less susceptible to skywave interference at night. It also has the advantage of longer range. This report details the rapid expansion of the Loran-C network, the availability of Loran-C charts, and new Loran-C equipment.
