They need a series of JIMI waypoints for the boomer generation pilots.

Airspace, Alerts and Aviation News / Re: scheduled GPS interference testing

Thanks for the heads-up. These are huge areas.

Although most people talk about "jamming", the GPS community distinguishes between "jamming" and "spoofing". The former is an attempt to make GPS unusable. The latter can be more serious, since it means altering or producing GPS signals that seem ok but cause receivers to show an incorrect position. I know there's a lot of work going on to try and increase immunity of receivers and the GPS system to both these threats.

And that is exactly why I choose 978 UAT...I’ll cling to the last remaining bit of privacy available.
Understood, but 978 isn't legal in Canada 

Don't think Canada has an ADS-B mandate, but they do plan to incorporate ADS-B into IFR ops.
From an AOPA ADS-B information website:
"Canada. Currently no mandate, but operators who voluntarily equip with 1090ES (particularly in the Hudson Bay and nearby oceanic airspace) can receive a higher level of service. Nav Canada is part of a joint air traffic surveillance venture, Aireon, installing ADS-B equipment on low-earth-orbit satellites. Nav Canada will be the launch customer when the service becomes available in 2018, and initially intends to incorporate 1090ES ADS-B into North Atlantic airspace. "

A&PI's who do owner assists are getting harder to find.

I still do. When you aren't too far away.
