NASA report: Passenger aircraft nearly crashes due GPS disruption


Along the lines of “Who the heck would jam GPS in the continental US?”,
I’ve got an anecdotal story from one of Haystack’s scientists who was trying to collect GPS data
(L1, L2 data is useful for measuring solar activity in the Ionosphere) during the solar eclipse in August 2017.
He was unable to collect data because of GPS jamming. The story was that truckers use GPS jammers so they
won’t be tracked by their employers.
