Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Working in fisheries management, I'm always in search of a tool to help me convert Loran-C or Time-Distance to Lat/Long. Anyone have a formula for that?

The Coast Guard has a tool available. You might try http://www.rdc.uscg.gov/rdcpages/soft-posaid2.html

ok, i need the acuall equation, the program from the link you gave doesnt work.

so just write down the equation like someone who does their job, instead of half-assing it.

thanks

sorry my temper is short cuz i need this in less than an hour and there is no program on the net that has this info up and running properly or has it to begin with.

sorry if i offended anyone
