Minor clarification, Loran-A was used from WW-2 until it was turned off in the 1980's I believe. The current system, Loran-C was in commercial use starting in the late 70's. When Loran-C was used for returning to a previously stored waypoint, it's accuracy was almost as good as current GPS and better than the early "dithered" commercial GPS service.
