Texas News: Mysterious GPS Disruptions Spread In Texas Near Fort Hood

Mysterious GPS Disruptions Spread In Texas Near Fort Hood

 

GPS interference is being reported around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Area airports, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The first reports of signal degradation occurred about 24 hours ago.

“Significant GPS interference being reported by pilots in the Dallas area. Aircraft being rerouted onto non-RNAV arrivals,” the flight tracking website ADS-B Exchange first reported Monday afternoon.

As you are racking your brain as to the culprit of these disruptions, think back three years to when China purchased over 100,000 acres of land in West Texas near U.S. Military Bases (Fort Hood being one of them.)

From a Redneck Perspective, a Version of a “Technical” would be what we call in Texas a “Pig Truck”.

Simply put, a Pig Truck is a 4×4 Truck of some type with good lighting, good suspension, good mud tires and a few mods in the back and up top.

Back in the Good Ole Days when you could find Century Arms Romanian RPK’s for cheap we had a couple of those with 100rd Beta Mags mounted with red dot’s on bipod swivel mounts on the roof. We found seats were pretty much useless in the bed of the truck, so we installed hand grips and a simple seatbelt harness to keep the one to two operators from getting thrown out.

If you can swing the personnel and are hunting at night, it’s good to have your passenger work a spotlight freeing up your driver to drive and your two shooter’s to SHOOT.

This is a very versatile set-up and could easily be changed from hunting Four legged critters to Two!

Last week I posted an article about thermal camouflage. In that article I mentioned the use of mylar GI Casualty blankets to hide a static position. However, this is more than simply draping the blanket on top of you, there is an technique that must be applied. Today I will show you my method of rigging a mylar blanket so that it meets my requirements in the field, as listed below:

  • It must conceal my thermal signature from air and ground sensors, regardless of how long I’ve been underneath it.
  • It must be visually camouflaged from air and ground observation.
  • It must not cause me to overheat when spending several hours under it.
  • It must be easy to set up and tear down quickly (under 5 minutes).
  • It must also serve as a shelter from wind, rain, and cold if necessary.

The following technique is the result of my…
