    Be warned that flight operation in and around Charleston SC could be compromised next week. I didn't go into the link for the details but any GPS data could be erroneous and should not be relied upon solely for flight operations.

    Here's the full email:

    I think that Charlestown has bigger things to think about next week than GPS testing!

    I totally agree. My bet is this was a previously "queued" for today's automatic release date.
