    Sorry for being off topic, but can the GPS system be
    'turned off'? A thread in another group has raised the
    question. Answers are ranging from "impossible" to "it
    would take days" to "the guys at space command could
    probably do it in minutes". Of course, I don't think
    any of these folks collectively have even half a clue
    as most individuals here on the topic.
    I thought about doing a google search but fear that
    most of the hits would be to doomsday and conspiracy
    sites and figured someone here would have the answer.
