Lorsta Bø lives on!

This just in:

The Norwegian Loran C stations will not be shut down on January 1st after all, as I said they would be in my previous post.

The Norwegian government announced today that they are going to propose to the Parliament that the Loran C stations at Jan Mayen, Berlevåg, Bø and Værlandet are to be kept operative throughout 2006. By doing this, they are bowing to pressure from several European countries who want to have Loran C remain as a backup system in case GPS fails.
