My Austron 2100's lock on to Anthorn, Lessay, and Sylt. I'm in Coventry,
about ~330km away from both Anthorn and Lessay

Don't think it's going away.

The UK is rolling out eLORAN,  which I thought is backwards
compatible with LORAN-C (I believe it uses the 9th pulse for data)

What I'm having trouble finding is any references to GRI's for
eLORAN - and I'm sure I saw one reference say that it didn't need
them, so I'm not sure on it's timing use, or the ability to sync
with UTC due to ToC

Others, better versed than I might have more info.
