PRN133 ranging now useable for SoL, at non precision approach level by macpacheco
Since PRN133 was set healthy for WAAS corrections, its ranging was kept at NM (Not Monitored) level, preventing its use for safety of life applications, however in the last few days, its ranging improved to UDRE 50 meters, which allows it to contribute for non precision approaches. With this...

Well JEPP has released a free app for JeppView on the iPad (free if you already have a subscription, of course). There are plenty of reviews out there for different tablets serving as EFB's, but from what I've seen the reviews focus on functions and navigation ease. I have not seen any serious...

Is there an on-line directory of TACAN locations? For example, the FAA lists on http://www.faa.gov/atpubs/LID/A_B.htm a TACAN on Bald Mountain Nevada, with designation GBM. However, there is more than one Bald Mountain in Nevada. I'm looking for lon/lat.

Galaxy XV / PRN 135 WAAS signal unofficially healthy again ? by macpacheco
Since March 1st, PRN 135 WAAS ranging has changed from NM (Not Monitored) to NPA (Non precision approach). From what I observed this wouldn't be possible with MT0 (test mode) being broadcast by said GEO. This is also typically the first step when a GEO is transitioned from Test mode into regular...

L5 signal set healthy even though only 12 IIF satellites are broadcasting it. But their ranging signals are as perfect as predicted, not enough for...
