GPS Under threat?

Interesting BBC news artical.

Funny thing about this line:

"Each satellite in a sat-nav constellation is putting out less power than a car headlight, illuminating more than a third of the Earth's surface at a distance of about 25,000 km.

What that means, and what has brought this group of policy-makers, academics and industry figures together, is that the signals can be easily swamped by equipment back on Earth. "

Funny part is that some of us (like me) are actually jamming ourselves with out video Txs..
