Coast Guard Loran Station Kure Island. Loran stations are no longer inservice due to today's use of GPS.

I've been slowly clearing out my warehouse and coming across old collections I haven't seen for years. Among them were a USCG patch horde of hundreds. I pulled many of the older ones (see photo). Any objections if I post several pages of photos? I don't wish to over run the thread unless invited as others are adding theirs too.

LORAN stations anyone? We used LORAN Alpha and Charlie signals to navigate the globe prior to GPS

 

Excellent USCG reference link with photos of LORAN and Communications Stations Patches (highly recommended) http://semperparatus.com/station_elec_insig.html
