    Just a heads up that there is a GPS jamming exercise taking place until 15 August in UK. It is originating somewhere in Wales and will affect most of the UK excepting Northern Scotland and Norfolk.

    Just be aware of any GPs signal loss or degradation and take care flying.

    It started on Monday or Tuesday I believe.

    Good post as most wouldn't have a clue! I certainly didn't until I read about it earlier in the week.
