I was navigator on racing sailboat on great lakes. we had first loran C in fleet. I wrote a program for TI calculator to convert time diff to LAT LONG. charts were large. ALWAYS going across Saginaw bay mouth LORAN would jump miles off position. All other times very accurate. Thunder storms would affect it. Over all great.

Great site. Served in Sellia Marina in 1983-1984, then in George, WA, with CO Ken Olsen, in 1984 to 1985, and my last tour of duty was in Kargaburum, Turkey, 1985 to 1986. My favorite was in Italy, learning it eat calamari, and drink the red wine made by the locals.

Wanted to let you know that Eva Parolin, a WREN serving at Baccaro passed away January 5 in her 96th year. Celebrated her life on Saturday and after hearing some of the stories decided to explore Loran history and her role a little more. Thanks for having this available to give a sense of what her life was like at this time. There were some poems she wrote on a display table about her time at Baccaro, so this history gives a little more context.

I was an ET2 there from Nov 64-Nov 65. My Dad was ETC there in 1958. We both had lifelong memories of it.
