PUBLIC INPUT SOUGHT ON FATE OF LORAN-C

The U.S. Department of Transportation, in coordination with the Department of Homeland Security, is seeking public input on the fate of the Long Range Navigation System, otherwise known as LORAN-C. The land-based navigation system, operated by the U.S. Coast Guard, could be slated for decommissioning later this year. The public is invited to submit comments as to whether the system should be decommissioned, maintained as is, or upgraded to an enhanced LORAN system to back up the GPS system. Comments are due no later than February 7. Visit www.navcen.uscg.gov/eLORAN/E6-22421.pdf, or call 800-368-5647 for more information.
