Default Need help with GPS/Loran set up

I'd like to set up my Garmin 498 to read Loran TD's. The set up calls for a "Loran Chain Number" plus a primary and secondary.

Where do you ascertain what the chain # is to enter and; what do you enter for the primary and secondary #'s ?

I had Loran in my last boat but forgot all about it.

Google "loran Chains" There are several links to the various chains--and you choose the primary for your area. If you have charts which have the loran TD (Time Delay) lines on the chart, it will also give the stations.
