WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT LORAN-C RECEIVERS

Are you ready for Loran-C? What kind of Loran-C receiver will you use? What should you know about Loran-C receivers before deciding? Can you convert your Loran-A receiver? Selection of a Loran-C receiver best suited to your navigational needs is an important decision. Loran-C covers part of the U.S. waters now, and by 1980 it will be available all around the United States except Northern Alaska. Loran-C will cover much more of the ocean off the U.S. than Loran-A, with no gaps, and it will also include the Great Lakes and much of the continental United States. Loran-C is accurate, dependable and long-range. It will replace the present Loran-A system which will be turned off after two years of overlapping service. This bulletin assumes you are already familiar with Loran-A. If you are not, you may want to do some background reading.
