Hello The Net: (especially the LORAN-C listeners)
Right now my SRS FS700 Loran-C receiver is locked onto a signal.
GRI 89700 microseconds station: AUTO (M)
location: DANA, IL USA
Tracking Loran-C signal
Receiver gain: 77dB
Noise margin: 39 dB
Loran Freq offset: -1.1E-10
Phase: -17.9 deg
Stations found: (ident: Amp in dB)
Time since lock: 0:21:40 ( had lock overnight, but with an error so I
did a new search)
Length last unlock: 0:10:42
Signal status: a r b n o
I am using the standard SRS active whip antenna about 7' above ground in
the back yard.
Receiver firmware is 1.19
As time permits I will compare the Loran-C to the T'Bolt GPS/DO, with
the Tracor 527E.
It is nice to have Loran-C signal to play with.
The Nantucket Loran-C station was a bout 40 miles away. Almost a Cs
reference in my shack.
