Welcome to the loran-history.info website
These pages remember the Coast Guardsmen, who served aboard Loran-A,
Loran-C stations, and other Loran billets worldwide. These dedicated Coasties
are but a few who provided radio navigation signals to millions of navigators.
These pages wouldn't exist except through the efforts of MCPO Bill Dietz,
USCG(ret). Bill has spent numerous hours for over a decade collecting the
information you find here.
If you wish to add your information to the database, just fill out the
Contact us form. Bill or I will update the list.
We are looking for pictures and stories. If you
