Given that it was late Sunday I almost thought "This server open Monday
through Friday only".  :)  I don't think it would be LORAN since there
are no more LORAN transmitters in the US.  LORAN-A has been long gone
and LORAN-C shut down a couple years ago.

The server in question is normally a stratum 2 system and currently has
a stratum 1 server IP as the refid.
