100 kHz LORAN 11 Jan 2017 UTC 0200

Hearing LORAN chattering away on 100 kHz.

Unable to ID them, possibly Dana & Seneca are at it again (but I'm unsure).

However, nothing on the LORAN-C receiver. Its been on for about 15 minutes so far.

Fairly strong here, seems to be Dana and Seneca again.

The receiver never did lock onto it, after several hours of trying. Unknown if the local QRM 95-98 kHz is killing the signal or if they're transmitting something that isn't LORAN-C compatible.
