Hi Folks

Received this sad message re Lessay and Soustons LORAN stations.
Would guess that France-Inter/TDF won't be far behind, as IIRC
France had decided to cease all LW transmissions, but I still
hope :)

 > CONTROL CENTER BREST AND THE TWO FRENCH LORAN STATIONS (LESSAY 
6731M/7499X AND
 > SOUSTONS 7499X)
 > WILL CLOSE DEFINITIVELY THE 31st OF DECEMBER 2015 AT 1100 UTC*

A real shame, as for me Lessay is stronger than Anthorn for me

With the 6731 Master off air, anyone know if The Austron 2100's will be
able to lock onto the remaining slaves at Anthorn and Sylt on the 6731
chain ?

(I guess I could lock onto the Sylt master on 7499, but Anthorn would be
more reliable from here...)

Anyone receivbed purely a slave station with the Austrons w/o being in
range of the master station ?
