This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. This week’s featured image is an old Loran-C unit because this week the US Government issued a notice about wanting comment on possibly using the eLoran system as a GPS backup.
