From the referenced doc:

"possible management options for the
future of the USCG LORAN–C Program:
(1) Decommission the USCG LORAN–
C Program and Terminate North
American LORAN–C Signal. Under this
alternative, all USCG LORAN–C signals
would be terminated at one time. All
USCG LORAN Stations would be
decommissioned; ..."

That would clearly be more than moving one station.
