With most of the Loran-C network in Europe shut off in Europe since 2015, public positioning services seems limited to satellite navigation (GPS/GLONASS/Galileo).

However, to what degree is the equivalent CHAYKA hyperbolic navigation network still usable? I'm having trouble finding information more recent than a decade old, making it possible that the system is no longer available.

    $\begingroup$ You might find more information if your search for its Russian name, Чайка, with your favorite search engine. Looks like it actually means "seagull" so you might get more hits than desired. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Doesn't appear to be much information after 2010, but I'll keep on looking, it's kinda interesting and I can exercise my pidgin Russian. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The masts at Dudinka and Taymylyr (demolished in 2009) were 460 metres high. this gives a clue that it may have been dismantled a while back. $\endgroup$
