Apparently the Utility DXers Forum (UDXF) reported that LORAN had been saved by radio amateurs, a story first reported here at The K3NG Report. The Milcom Monitoring Post blog attempts to set the record straight.

Yes, the story was a spoof. Radio amateurs unfortunately are not saving LORAN. LORAN is being deactivated so that we'll be defenseless against mutant alien ants that are awaiting the network of GPS satellites to be turned into chunks of space garbage after the next X class flare. I've been decoding the shortwave numbers stations for some time and I know a bit about their plans. Oooops, I said too much already.
