    Hi Lu, 

    About 5 years ago I wondered whether they used CN in the fleet anymore and called the Penn NROTC office.  The instructor who answered floored me that not only do they not use it in the fleet but all NROTC and USNA curricula had dropped it!  I was stunned!  

    I figure the logic is that if things get bad enough to knock out GPS we probably don't have much left to worry about anyway!   

    Jim
