IMPACT OF LORAN-C DECISION ON OREGON MARITIME INTERESTS

D. A. Panshin

Abstract: There are presently at least Loran-A users in Oregon representing such major categories as commercial fishermen, recreational boaters, charterboat operators, and towboaters. All existing Loran-A users, plus many others, are potential Loran-C users. The West Coast Loran-C chain is scheduled to start operation on January 1, 1977. Many problems face the prospective Loran-C user in Oregon: receiver cost, charts, lack of information, and misinformation. All of these problems can be alleviated by a longer transition period and a vigorous education program.
