[time-nuts] Loran Europe Lessay seems to be back on air?

If I remember correctly the GLA(Trinity Ho.) has a contact with Babcock who 
run Anthorn which goes through to 2019 or 2020. The notice to mariners did 
not mention Anthorn but it did request that nav. receivers be turned off. If 
TH terminate that contact they will presumably have to pay Babcock anyway so 
they may as well continue "playing". From the papers it would seem the North 
Sea study has been completed.

I am just surprised that, naively, they did not get assurance from the 
French that they would keep Lessay running, because the move to eLoran was 
very much promoted by the French though they did not get a lot of support 
from other European countries.

I remember being told by a senior member of the RIN that he thought it was a 
"dead duck" and a waste of money.
