LORAN -A,C are all dead in north america.
I think you have a boat anchor. Pun intended.
The LORAN As never had a keypad because they were analog.
As I recall they also used a twinax connector.
I dealt with a LORAN A on the NAVY ships in 1973, transitioned to OMEGA
(Long dead) and the LORAN C before getting out. It was pretty new. Also
aboard ship we were actually experimenting with sat nav. I think it was the
transit sats or even pre-transit. It was hush hush stuff then. Special team
came on board hooked up stuff for a run to Hawaii.
Regards
