The use of Loran-C transmissions for time and frequency synchronization has been discussed in a number of recent publications. This paper presents further developments of the techniques of relating Loran-C times of transmission with the universal time-coordinated (UTC) second. In addition, it reports on the current synchronization status of Loran-C transmissions and outlines typical instrumentation configurations for use with long baseline experiments as well as for other applications.
