Right. All the talk about jammers and spoofers is worrysome, but then I heard not long ago that the GPS system might start to fail by early next year through lack of satellite maintenance/replacement. The authorities are quite tough on spoofers and I believe pretty successful at tracking them down, and while a problem, pretty small. The failure of the system itself is another thing, not malicious but negligence on the part of responsible authorities with potentially catastrophic consequences on a wide scale.

It doesn't take much to jam a GPS signal...although I won't go into it on the internet.
