Hello Claude,

Austron 2100F will only be good for the old LORAN-C,  not any enhanced  
e-LORAN.
Austron has been long out of business, so I would not expect any field 
upgrade options.
I have not heard of others doing mods to the 2100F, to be fully e-LORAN 
capable.

Brooke has the manual set on a CD. You will be happy with his product.

Other commercial, laboratory grade, LORAN-C timing receivers like the
Stanford Research Systems model FS700 will not do e-LORAN to the best of 
my knowledge.

The LOCUS brand receivers are a modern RX, but I do not know their 
e-LORAN capability.
