Hi there,

I've picked up a posting on another forum advising that Ofcom have been informed that the MoD are to carry out a GPS jamming excercise on the following dates:

7-11 September and 14-18 September 2009 for limited periods between 09.00 and 17.00 hours.

It is to occur within 5km of N52 00.881 and W003 38.518 (Sennybridge
Training Area, Mid-Wales).

Last time they did that it was a tad more widespread than they planned, hopefully this time they'll keep the power levels down and look at their antenna sighting plots first ;)

I have just had the following announcement through via the UK Ham Radio news network (Of which I'm a reader.) about an incident that is going to affect sat navs in Scotland:

"If you are driving in the very North of Scotland or the Orkneys between 6th and 16th of July, and your GPS system goes dead, it might be jammed, and the jamming is legal. The MOD will be conducting a GPS jamming exercise. The July tests will be for limited periods between 1100 and 1500. The location for the exercise is to sea westwards from 58 degrees 57.4 minutes North and 3 degrees and 13.9 minutes West, which is about 60 nautical miles west of Kirkwall. The MOD conducts occasional tests on military systems that may result in some loss of service to civilian users of the GPS system. This includes such equipment as in-car navigation devices and other networks that rely on GPS signals."


Now it isn't going to affect everybody because of the location involved, and weather conditions could extend the range of the jamming, but companies that rely on tracking devices in their trucks may be affected.
