There have been a few letters about this, so thought I would amplify on my
post. On the Country Hour on ABC Radio yesterday, the spokesman for a firm
in Australia that supplies GPS technology to broad acre farmers, confirmed
that there was interference to the system in Australia due to the Americans
jamming a number of satellites at certain times of the day. It is not all
the time, but it has been causing problems with farmers who rely on the
system for spraying, etc. with GPS guided tractors. DF.
