1)Is my old Raytheon Loran worth anything?
2)Can I use my VHF or old Loran antenna for my AM/FM/CD? I would be using the VHF and AM/FM/CD on the VHF if I go that route.
3)How hard is it to wire the Atwood hockey puck-sized lights? I have a '18 outrage and it looks like I have plenty of room on my insturment/fuse panel.

Antennas are tuned for specific bands.

LORAN = 0.1 MHz
AM = 1.0 MHz
FM = 100 MHz
VHF = 156 MHz

The AM receiver would not likely receive well on either the LORAN or VHF antenna.

The FM receiver may receive well enough to be usable on the VHF antenna.

Check e-bay for LORAN prices. I looked about
six months ago out of curiousity, and the
answer was: not much at all.

Get the best VHF antenna you can afford, then get the better grade Shakespeare AM/FM/VHFsplitter to receive your AM/FM through your VHF. Wasn't aware a CD needed an antenna ;)

Also get a radio shack electronic noise suppressor thingie and wire the stuff through that to your battery connection.

What the hell is a "hockey" puck light by the way.

Depends on the Loran model, some go for decent bucks some pennies. There are lots of fishermen who just don't want to let go of their Lorans and always looking for replacements. Guess they learned how to use them and don't want to risk fool'n around with GPS to mark the hot spots.
