Good News and Plenty of It by Sam Wormley[_2_]
http://www.gpsworld.com/good-news-and-plenty-of-it/ Good News and Plenty of It By Alan Cameron, Editor-in-chief Firing on all cylinders - to use a slightly outmoded technological metaphor - GNSS moved forward on virtually every front in the past month. GPS made major advances both on the ground and in space, Galileo took a giant step, Compass continued on its roll, and GAGAN is settling...

Client sw; moving bookmarks by David Lesher
{Wish I saw a better newsgroup for this...} So a friend has Delorme on a laptop, and would like to move to some kind of Android tablet. He'd get one with a USB port for an outboard receiver. But what kind of stand-alone mapping clients are available for Android, and how can he convert his bookmarks/notes to it? -- A host is a host from coast to

GPS IIF-3 positioning by HIPAR
GPS IIF-3 has 'drifted' around the world since it was launched on 04 OCt 12.. Actually it was placed in a higher near circular orbit that lengthened its orbital period allowing the A1 position to catch up with it. It's now orbiting very close to the PRN30 satellite which currently occupies the prime A1 slot. Apparently, a final positioning is in progress. From the GPS Yuma almanac: was ...

GPS+Galileo+Falcon 9 3 for 3, yeay ! by [email protected]
Dragon docked with the ISS, Falcon 9 didn't deliver ORBcomm precisely due to ISS launch requirements. If the launch wasn't to the ISS, the 2nd stage could have been relighted making up for the first stage one of 9 engine out condition (their on board software compensated perfectly for the primary mission), even Saturn V rockets suffered from in flight engine failures. But ORBcomm launch was an...

Observatory measures solar storms’ effects on polar GPS navigation by Sam Wormley[_2_]
Observatory measures solar storms’ effects on polar GPS navigation http://blogs.physicstoday.org/newspicks/2012/10/observatory-measures-solar-storms-effects-on-polar-gps-navigation/ The ionosphere is the first atmospheric layer that GPS radio signals encounter on their way from space-based satellites to Earth. When solar activity causes the layer to fluctuate, GPS signals can be...

Upcoming IIF launch, predictions by [email protected]
SVN 27 / PRN 27 will be replaced instead of SVN 39 / PRN 9 (the two form a tight pair). Rationale: A - A Delta V maintenance was scheduled for SVN 39. If that bird was about to be retired, why do maintenance on it right before it gets shut down ? B - Ephemeris / Clock performance of SVN 27 / PRN 27 is 30 cm worse than SVN 39. Why shutdown the better of the two, leaving the worse online...

signal strength meter by Jim Whitby
I'm a decent tech, but not an engineer... I have a Tomtom 2535 gps. Nice unit blah blah. Some ( software? ) engineer decided to change the gps info display. It now contains a pic of earth with dots for satellites instead of a bar graph. Ok. No biggie. Except now there is a signal strength percent! Percent of what???

Once upon a time you could do a Google search for Usenet posts I just tried to search out some of my old posts when I was last interested in calculating position from RINEX format data (back in 2008-2010) I just did the search and got 30 hits *BUT* Google does not allow reading the posts. I suspect that you have to join Google groups to read them. I will not they are USENET post not google...

Meanwhile, back in August ... 2 sats came online by Alan Browne
GPS-2A-22 (Aug 1993) decommissioned in 2010 has been resurrected to replace GPS 2A-27. 2A-27 has a faulty clock. 2A-22 is SVN 35 (PRN 30) And a GPS IIF (16 July 2012 launch) is now online. SVN 63 (PRN 1). As of late August that means 31 active GPS satellites. GLONASS: 31 (23 online; 1 in maintenance status at present + 4 spares +

Thoughts on GPS/GNSS from the CGSIC Meeting Held Earlier this Week by Marcelo Pacheco
http://www.gpsworld.com/survey/thoughts-gpsgnss-cgsic-meeting-held-earlier-week-13351 By: Eric Gakstatter .... 4. Of the 12 Block IIF GPS satellites being built, two are in orbit with the first being launched in 2010 and the second one last year. A third is scheduled to launch later this year. That equates to one launch per year. Clearly, this pace cannot continue or it would be the year 2022...
