Re: Decca chains

For navigating in your home waters they are rather excellent, although a trifle heavy for carrying while mountaineering.

For dropping precision guided munitions on the fuzzy-wuzzys they are are bit limiting.

Once you have successfully negotiated with the recalcitrant natives to install your navigation beacons it seems rater bad form to then bomb them.
