The Coast Guard will decommission the Loran-C station in Caribou, Maine, today after 35 years of service.

Station Caribou is the last station to transmit an American Loran signal. The closing ends the 67-year Loran-C program.

Termination of the program was supported through the enactment of the fiscal 2010 Homeland Security Appropriations bill. Transmission of the American signal ended Feb. 8, and the Canadian signal was terminated Aug. 3.
