I was of the impression 3 would do and the master can be one of the points.
However for LORAN C after the new year it won't matter.
eLORAN has some useful properties in the data channel. I suppose with luck
we will all learn more about that. At least at the moment my old LORAN C
gear is very happy with the eLORAN out of NJ and so far my house hasn't
moved an inch or meter.
I hope that there may be further testing and development of eLORAN in
Though I think you were way ahead of us on that front.
