View Full Version : Loran Conversions, Props to Offshore Hunter
10-23-2003, 08:51 AM
I was handed a loran book of commercial numbers from a 15 year commercial fishing veteran. I used the Offshore Hunter Software to convert the #'s to gps. The import function worked great. I entered all the numbers into excel and did a mass import. The offshore hunter sofware Kicks ass! Verified some numbers last weekend and the conversions were only 100-200' off at 225 heading.

spot 1 225 heading .02 miles (105.6 feet)
spot 2 230 heading .04 miles (211.2 feet)
spot 3 252 heading .02 miles (105.6 feet)
spot 4 213 heading .03 miles (158.4 feet)
We just go to the converted gps number then take a 225 heading and bam, theres the spot. FREAKIN AWESOME!
Really glad I picked that software up at ST. Pete Open.
