probably be thick fog when they do it as well

got me supicions like, EGNOS, the european gps system went live on 1st october, and most folk reckon it will be licenced (ie you have to pay for it)

maybe looking to see if they can wipe out the free gps in local areas to force us to pay for egnos??

be interesting to see how all the numpties that rely on their tom tom/in car sat nav cope when trying to drive from tynemouth to shields

or maybe its just a way of trying to fool the world into thinking whitely bay no longer exists  ???

Daft question, maybe, but what's the purpose of these tests? Why would anyone want to jam the GPS system?

I assume this is why the Trinity House Ship, Galatea is in the Tyne at the moment.

curious thought, that given the jamming trials, there's a muckle huge dredger digging holes in the river for the new tunnel that has a massive reliance on accurate numbers

Be funny to see it go a bit wonky cos of the trials

They did the same trial off scarborough last year, testing the efficiency of DGPS against eLoran/egnoss

why the feck they need to do it again beats me.  Still reckon they are up to something that will ultimately end up costing money somewhere along the line

hadn't thought about that, the inbound flight path to Newcastle runs straight through the area they are 'testing' with a left turn over st mary's!

I see that Fishing News (18 December 2009 edition) has an article on the Trials - page 6 by David Linkie.

It was the THV Galatea that carried out the tests.
