    As an EX-USCG veteran we used Loran A and found it almost useless enroute to Vietnam. Our star search and Sunlines were the only way to find our way around the world. Atmospheric conditions and storm fronts set us many times into DR mode with regards to Loran-A, Sat-Nav, Omega and Loran-C. Electronic equipment is just an aid to navigation proving a penciled in chart fix every hour with Dead Reckoning as its backup is the only natural way to get home when Murphy takes over.

    I purchased one of these Sitex E-Loran units to find old fishing spots. The loran does not work accurately and the GoTO waypoint does not take you to the actual loran TD. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS UNIT. Sitex has a software problem with this unit and cannot fix it. They will not accept returns, so your stuck with Junk!~
    Sitex admited to me they test their marine units in a car. Sorry company!
