    Lawmakers overseeing US Coast Guard move to stop CG from dismantling any more of Loran.

    I think many of us realize that the 21st Century version of
    Loran, eLoran, would be a robust alternative to GPS in case GPS is
    jammed.   Land-based transmitters, signal thousands of times more
    powerful than GPS, very different frequencies -- all characteristics of
    a robust alternative.
    In fact, several countries, including Britain and South Korea, are
    implementing eLoran systems.
    eLoran was proposed as an upgrade to the US's Loran system several years
    ago -- and then deleted from the US budget.
    This new bill does not quite make it happen, but it at least stops the
    US Coast Guard from tearing down and/or selling off any facilities
    needed to revive Loran and update it to eLoran.
