Considering the modernizing of LORAN-C with data subcarrier and modernized
transmitter equipment it could be argued that it to some degree is a LORAN-D.

Would love to learn more on Omega and Loran-A through D.

I enjoyed the info on the Russian woodpecker online (google, it is great fun
and not something you just arbitrarilly have on the back yard).

Cheers,
Magnus
