FS has never used Loran-C at all, so there's zero impact on its demise... ;)

Good bye to an old friend. When I joined the US Navy in 1960 in the middle of the Pacific ocean all we had was celestial navigation and Loran "A". Then, Loran ( LOng RAnge Navigation) took a long time to get a fix and the accuracy was questionable, at best. Then Loran C came along and it was a superior navigation system, then came OMEGA, then GPS...... jerrycwo4

i used loran back in the early 80s on the family sailboat. was a PITA as the location i sailed made receiption a challenge. used the unit only rarely in low-visibility situations.then came GPS ... more exact and easy to use.--

LORAN with its low frequency system worked for subs under water as I recall. I doubt that GPS would. I suppose subs link to GPS when they can surface or get an antenna up from just below and then calibrate an IRS of some type.A little off topic here :)
