Welcome to Loran-History.info
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
wish to contribute, please
FYI - Site Maintenance underway.
For the next few months we are conducting an audit of the html pages to
ensure compliance with the current standards. There is extraneous html
code on some pages and it needs to be brought up to date. I am doing each
letter of the alphabet as a group before moving on to the next grouping.
If you sent something to Bill that belongs in the portion of the alphabet I'm
currently working, it won't appear as timely as others. Please bear with
me during this process. I hope to make the site more friendly for
the mobile users (tablets and smart phones) as well as faster for the wired
I am currently working on group C. Thru
Cape San Blas is completed.
I will update this paragraph as I work through the alphabet.
Thanks to Ray Rebmann Fred's
Place Reunion Hall will be posted on each station page.
