None of them seems to be the demolition of Big Ben, so time-keepers is 
safe beyond that of the downed Loran-C transmitter in Alaska. However, 
more antennas will be downed as Loran-C is decommissioned. Besides, I 
would not be surprised if they consider the value of the scrap metal as 
part of the economics.
