+ - U.S. Coast Guard wants to kill LORAN-C->

Submitted by adaviel
adaviel (1189751) writes "LORAN (Long Range Aids to Navigation) is an electronic navigation system using low-frequency radio, used by many boaters (including me) before GPS. It has an approximately 200m accuracy and is a functional replacement in case GPS fails or the US implements selective availability in time of war. The US Coast Guard intends to turn it off starting February 8."
