We are sadden to report that LORAN has passed away quietly after a long lingering illness on February 8th 2010 of Obsoletitis. Despite earlier efforts at surgery, a DNR was put in place by the family. LORAN is survived by his children GPS, and USNO GPS, and thousands of grumpy fishermen who would not give up on their TD's, and buy a GPS. Memorial services will held at Bob's Used Marine Electronics Emporium in Brooklyn NY. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to the GPS manufacturer of your choice.
For those that did not get the TD's changed over, I will do a piece on how to convert TD's to Lat/Long numbers with decent fidelity. All is not lost.
