- Work has continued to site-in a Loran-C nonprecision approach at the Ohio University Gordon K. Bush Airport located in Albany, Ohio. A survey was performed using the Motorola Mini-Ranger Satellite Surveying System, which uses the Navy's TRANSIT satellites. This position was obtained using the point-position method only, that is the position was calculated from sequential Doppler measurements as the TRANSIT satellite's passed within view of the receiver's antenna. Another method, called translocation, can use differential techniques which provide better results. The accuracies obtained, however, are sufficient to site-in a Loran-C nonprecision approach.
