Default Loran C

I seldom use Loran, but I want to have a backup for my GPS units. My Loran reads roughly 43860 and 14665 +/- for Montauk LH, NY. My buddy's unit reads 43860 and 25990 for the same. I've seen the 25000s readings on oceantemp.com too. All the other Loran units I've seen show 14000s for our area. Please explain the difference.

When you set up your LORAN you should pick the chains that give the strongest signal. You should also be able to toggle the different chains until you get the best pair.

What kind of LORAN is it?

Thanks for the response.

The unit is a SiTex Koden C787C.

If I visit oceantemp.com and select the example map showing Montauk NY, I do get an overlay showing both the 14000 and 25000 north/south lines. The east/west lines are all in the 43000 range. Is the 25000 part of a separate chain. I would think that the chains overlap and are consistent.

They are from different ground stations or chains. I used the 2 and 4 lines on my Northstar.
