Norfolk GPS jamming from 11th to 22nd of February 2019


#24

All i’ll say is: KEEP OUT OF NORFOLK for the next week !!
Remember, you can’t get lost!, we only have 1 ferkin’ decent road in (A11), and another one out (A47) !!


#25

The way I read it they are blocking 433-915MHz and 2.5-5.8GHz as well as GPS for 2 minutes up to 5 times an hour.

Could potentialy affect 5GHz wifi systems and possibly car keyless entry which operates at 433.92MHz…


#26

GNSS jamming to. Having a crack at the Russian set up as well! Interesting. a very large area so maybe jamming from both ground and air.


#27

SHIT!, I’m heading for the shelter !!
Rations?, tea?, coffee?, milk?, fags?, drone?


#28

I’d love to know what they’re using on the ground to measure / capture the effect? :thinking:


#29

Mavic Pro or Mavic Pro 2? :thinking:


#30

Actually - we should invade the place by drones flown by those happy to fly ATTI … and buzz them incessantly all day!

I mean - it’s only a warning, not an NFZ! :wink:


#31

May be John @Manty should doing some ground testing for us, he’s nearest?


#32

i’m game !!


#33

Up to 40,000 ft? so our drones are really spotted by airline pilots then?guess that means all these drone sightings must be true then?Nasty,Nasty drone pilots,ban em all…:rofl::rofl::rofl:


#34

For sure - airlines will be avoiding the area! And, anyway, @ 40k you’re above most of them so they won’t see you. :wink:


#35

Look out,down below…:rofl::rofl::rofl:


#36

It will be interesting watching “Flight Radar” over the next week or so, as one of the North Sea crossing points for the Airlines is across the Wash in a line to Cromer, and over to Europe.


#37

So, did you get your Flying day?, (and did the your guests head for the local Chippy for dinner)?


#38

Well I did get out to fly but the drone just would not get off the ground ? Tried two different locations but still 'no go! Message on the phone said ‘magnetic interference’ Anyhoo, got back home (& yes via the chippy) & the drone worked perfectly. Superb day so did enjoy the getting out part of it.:+1:


#39

Were you near anything metallic?, that’s is common if you are to near the car.
OR do you think it was anything to do with this test they were doing?


#40

sometime pays you to do an IMU Calibration together with a Compass Calibration.
Magnetic Interference can affect the IMU in certain scenarios.
Would have to see the Logs from the drone to know what was going on.


#41

This is the entrance to my pals place (white arrow on road) where the drone would not take off despite calibration attempts. He has a few acres all to the left of those pylons. TBH I had not been on the land before yesterday so was not aware of the pylons. Add that to the issue of potential ‘signal jamming malarky’ in the area I was very probably on a hiding to nothing but ‘hey-ho’ nothing ventured an all that! Is it worth even trying to fly within sight of these pylons again or are they an absolute no no ? Your thoughts !


#42

Pylons won’t affect your drone.

Unless you crash in to them :slight_smile:


#43

I agree with Rich, they should not have any adverse affect on the way it flys.
Could you not even start the drones motors?
