SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR MORE PRECISE LORAN NAVIGATION

Arthur R. Miller

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The Loran system of navigation enables one to find his exact position at any time regardless of weather or visibility. While Loran and other related systems represent a tremendous advance in navigational science, a deep insight is needed into the difficulties and confusions that sometimes arise in their use. Since the science of navigation is obviously a critical science, it is a credit to most navigators not to accept Loran information too readily without the proper understar1din.g of the whys and wherefores of Loran discrepancies. The purpose of this article is to discuss the apparent errors of Loran observations and to promote procedures which will enable the critical navigator to use Loran lines of position with confidence and reliability.
