US and Canadian East Coast Loran closed today

Apparently the very last Loran TX on the east coast of the USA and Canada closed at 0500 today. This will make reception on 136kHz much easier in this part of the world. At one time Loran was one of the most popular navigation systems in the world but now made obsolete by GPS units costing a few dollars and fitting in your pocket.
