GPS serves far more users than the Loran system ever did. Aviation industry, military, cars, trains, trucks, hikers, tracks stolen cars. I think elimination of the Loran system makes sense. Limited to use by a small group, duplicating what is available on another more widely available system. The Loran system cost more than pennies and I'm OK with saving a few.
