Hi David,
I've only used Loran specific hardware receivers for actual decoding,  so 
no doubt others will be better able to answer your question re suitable  
software, but one thing to watch out for is that the stations don't actually  
transmit a named identifier.
With all stations transmitting at 100KHz, identification depends on the  
pre-allocated group repetition interval (GRI), with the secondary  stations in 
a particular group being identified by their time relationship  to the 
Purpose made receivers that identify stations by name do so from internally 
 stored data, which is why my FS700s always insist that Anthorn is really 
Loop  Head in Ireland, SRS jumped the gun a bit but never issued an updated 
PROM after  the proposed station at Loop Head didn't go into service:-)
It's certainly fun just monitoring today though, both Master and Y  station 
are back at the moment but the modulation's been changing about  enough to 
suggest someone might even be trying to play tunes on  it:-)
I'm receiving pulses on 100 kHz with AirSpy and a SpyVerter, but I have no  
Windows software to decode the signal and determine just which LORAN it is. 
Can anyone recommend suitable Windows software?
Being located in  Edinburgh the signal is reasonable  strong.
