1977. The year that punk broke. Also on this day in 1977 (19th July) the first GPS signal was received and decoded in Iowa USA. David Van Dusseldorp was working for Rockwell Collins using the 6ft tall receive in the picture above. They subsequently won the contract from the US Airforce to run the NAVSTAR (GPS) user equipment service.

In 40 years the technology has clearly got a lot smaller and it's amazing to see just how much the technology has advanced!
