There is a lot of info available on low frequency aircraft beacons, but nothing that I could find about marine beacons.
Sir, about 20 years ago. Their were differential beacons . If you had a loran c. Or a Gps with the Capability. The Furuno gps 28, circa 1996, furuno gps 30 1998 ,furuno 32 2000. Look for the Waas feature.
I know the locations on the great lakes.
