5G GPS LOI Issues?

Post by 6930 »

They have been putting 5G on-line here in Northern Illinois recently. I'm president of the board of directors at Naper Aero (LL10) and a number of pilots have reported to me that they have experienced GPS loss of integrity issues over the past few days. I had the same problem myself in my 140 with a Stratus ESG and Garmin GNC 250XL which led me to think I was having some kind of electrical issue in my airplane. Both units lost position on me multiple times.

Our airport manager filed a GPS anomaly report with the FAA. He also talked to TRACON and they told him they have been receiving reports from a number of airports in the area.

Here's a link to a Youtube video posted by our airport manager while landing a 182 at Naper....this is not cool. It would suck big time to be on our GPS approach to minimums and have this problem crop up!

We don't know for sure if it is a 5G thing, but it kind of looks like it might be. I'll post as I learn more. Meanwhile, those of you flying instrument approaches should be aware that there may be a problem.

Get the Covid-19 vaccine, apparently it will clear up all 5G issues but metal stuff will stick to you like crazy!

Sorry could not help myself
