    Anyone using GPS in The Southeastern US beware of the Navy doing "GPS Interference testing" that affected me here in Colorado today! Here is the link to the PDF from the FAA. I'm at 4600 feet and all my GPS devices thru a fit and my A2 couldn't keep 3 satellites when it normally sees 14 (in my garage no less!)

    Be interesting to hear if anyone else was affected.

    I believe the NOTAM is for the Southwestern US - primarily California, from the Mexican boarder, to just north of Sacramento.

    They are running the tests on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the month of June.
