Time for a GPS Jamming activity update. [10.01.23]

New areas of concern:

1) Gigantic block of jamming in the Black Sea – extending from Turkey to coasts of Bulgaria and Romania.

2) Russian GPS jamming extending into Kazakhstan. Purpose unclear, started on 04.01.2023.

The pattern is like a wall between Istanbul/Ankara/Izmir and Russia/Crimea. There has been much nato air activity in that area in the last days,so it could be connected… It’s purpose could also be to “blind” Ukrainian NATO- supplied GPS-guided weapons.

Breaking: Sudden Surge In Russian Navy Ships And Submarines In Black Sea

Russia has a variety of military mobile jamming systems, some with a range of hundreds of kilometres, which broadcast radio noise to block out the weak satellite signals. GPS signals around the Kremlin in Moscow have been disrupted for some years.

Russia has stepped up satellite navigation jamming, especially around Moscow, in an apparent attempt to ward off any long-range strikes by Ukrainian drones.

Russia is known for interfering with global navigation satellite systems, in particular GPS, which is operated by the US military and is ubiquitous in smartphones, car satnavs and other devices. Updates from the monitoring site GPSJam show that Russian jamming activity has increased sharply within Russia.
