I was wondering if anyone else has noticed problems with GPS lately? I ride the bus daily and there is a GPS announcer system on the bus. Basically it tells you what intersection you are near. I am guessing to help the elderly and blind or legally blind figure out where they need to get off the bus. To make a long story short on that I have noticed over the last month or so that the locations are off by up to 3 blocks. It used to squak the location off everytime you came near the intersection, and now it is way off. I am not sure but I would swear that it has actually gotten worse over the last month as in further and further down the road.

I was wondering if anyone thought this might have anything to do with the pole shift or the geomagnetic field failures that I have been reading about.

This is not mine, this is taken from a site that I usually read up on everyday, called Independence Journal. Well this will tell you alot of what is probably happening. Here is a sample from today's

Friday at the WuJo

Coping: Tearing Apart the World, Part I

Welcome to the WuJo! This is where we take apart fact and theory so we can re-weave it into a closer approximation of objective reality than might otherwise be had by simply accepting all the ideas floating around in the netosphere unchallenged.

The facts we line up this morning are these:


We identified a 'band' of earthquake activity roughly described by a trans-equatorial orbit which covers a great deal of the earth's recent quakes, including the recent 7.4 in Pakistan, the strange activity in the Gulf Aden, the increased activity down around Indonesia, and so forth. Not that we ascribe earthquake activity to anything orbiting, and it may all just be the appearance, but the trans-equatorial track is there (goes over China, too before swinging south again) if one looks at the data. (Maps in Peoplenomics #489A under "Shaky New Year, Redux.)

Also in that report, we touched on the great African Rift which is threatening to fly open which would cause all kinds of problems, not the least of which would be steam if the Gulf of Aden were to start pouring into the widening rift. This morning's headline that ought to bring the possibility more to front-of-mind is found at Before It's News under the headline "Violent Seismic Activity Tearing Africa in Two."

Next (like this isn't enough?) we had the stories about the Tampa Airport runway renumbering project. See "North Pole shifting causes RIA to renumber runways." Admittedly, this is "oldish" news, but we're weaving all this into a new mat at here at the WuJo, so hang in there.

Next, we pause for an objective bit of science. The following is an animated .GIF file, borrowed from Wikipedia:

Estimated declination contours by year, 1590 to 1990

What's interesting about this particular animated .GIF file? Well, it shows us something extremely pertinent to our discussion of earth changes. I assume you know that there are isogonic lines of force that run from the magnetic north pole to the south? Think of these as "the lines a compass align themselves to when pointing north. Remember: Local North is not always the same as True North. This .GIF file shows that the zero line for the North American declination (the variance from True North measured by a magnet is where lately? We see a huge variation in Magnetic North up through the 1600's, but check out where that line is today? Right off the east coast of Florida.

And THAT is where things start to get precisely UGLY. Because the location of the zero offset from True North isogonic line seems to run either very close to - or right at - where the government is about to shut down the Global Positioning System (GPS) for unspecified testing. And we quote from the Jan 19, 2011 Notices to Airmen Advisory right off the FAA's Flight Safety webiste as follows:

The Department of Defense will conduct GPS tests on January 20th through February 22nd, 2011. During testing, the GPS signal may be unreliable or unavailable.

A. Location: Centered at 304906N/0802811W or the location know as 105.25 degrees and 52.1 NM from the SSI VOR.

B. Dates and times: GPS testing is scheduled on January 20th through February 11th, 2011 from 0000-0245 UTC daily and February 15th through February 22nd, 2011 from 0000-0245 UTC daily. These tests may not be concurrent so pilots are advised to check NOTAMS frequently for possible changes prior to operating in the area.

C. Duration: Several test events will be conducted and will be active for 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes of off time.

D. During testing, GPS will be unreliable and may be unavailable with in a circle with a radius of 370NM and centered at 304906N/0802811W or the location known as 105.25 degrees and 52.1 NM from the SSI VOR at FL400; decreasing in area with a decrease in altitude to a circle with a radius of 325NM at FL250; a circle with a radius of 260NM at 10,000FT MSL and a circle with a radius of 215NM at 4,000FT AGL.

E. Pilots are highly recommended to report anomalies during testing to the appropriate ARTCC to assist in the determination of the extent of GPS degradation during tests.

And the map area? As I said, suspiciously like it's close to the zero magnetic deviation line in the magnetic lines of force animation above:

Now, even all this would not have gotten my attention under most cases, except for this email purporting to be from a reader who...well...a few things redacted for privacy concerns, but you'll get the idea:


I have debated with myself most of the day about sending you the following, but NASA knows what is going on and Hubby works for [redacted] and he says something is "fixing" to happen, much sooner than later. So here goes.

Sorry to be contributing to your overcrowded in-box two days in a row but I feel I should warn you that Hubby told me this morning we should be making preparations to leave for our safe house in the Wyoming mountains. This means submitting resignations that become effective at the end of the day! We live in a condominium so we will just lock the door and drive away, more than likely never to return. Our Chevy Suburban with 4x4 drive, dual gas tanks, off-road tires, heavy duty winch, souped up engine designed for pulling a RV,etc., etc. was purchased with just this scenario in mind. We are both licensed SEL pilots but do not trust our beloved [aircraft type] as Hubby says winds are going to play a huge factor in what is coming. Best to stay out of the air and off the water. And besides, we want our reliable new Suburban with us at all times from now on as it is much more practical for what is ahead.

George, it appears the smelly stuff is not to far away from the whirling giant blades at this point. Hubby left this (see below) on my desktop this morning with a message simply stating "time to hit the road". I talked to him again a little while ago and asked if he was still serious about this and he said he was writing out his resignation as he was talking to me, but probably won't matter one way or the other. He says it is getting somewhat tense around the [ redacted] office. He doesn't know if the following article is to blame or everything the powers have been struggling to conceal - the truth about coming earth changes, the economy, and everything else - is about to be revealed. Regardless, his intuition tells him to be in the mountains just in case. He is a big believer in following "hunches" as I am.

Something is definitely going on and all of a sudden - out of the blue, clear sky - as the George Strait song goes, we are about to take the first step in trying to survive whatever the hell is about to hit us. We will be leaving [date] for Wyoming and probably will drive straight through, taking turns napping and driving. In a perverse kind of way, this is becoming exciting....besides we love Wyoming just as we do Texas.

Note: ( I toyed with this for awhile). The state of Texas is not a safe place to be George, not even the Davis mountains according to Hubby or that is where we would be headed because we love it out there. The further away from the ocean the better he says. God be with you and yours.

Now, whether this letter is a clear warning or is just a reader sending a "something to freak out George's monkey-mind" ought to be clear soon enough. But remember our local "earthquake sensitive" sees stuff ahead, too.

And I assume you saw where George Lucas' remarks about 2012 are now being rewritten in the MSM as "George Lucas was just kidding about that End of the World Thing." Kidding - or leaking - that's a judgment call for you to make.

But just remember that one of the apparent 'rules' by which the PTB seem to operate is that there is some kind of advance disclosure 'law' governing how they behave; It may also be a management-level tenant of the rewritten version of Christianity (Origin is what some Stargate fans call it [another example of hiding truth in plain sight?]) that came out of the First Council of Nicaea...but that's a too-long-and-too-weird-for-here discussion...although the aware might see how Isis followers might have woven a certain mother-figure into the early church dogma...(no emails on this, please; ankhs for asking - or is that a censor?).

One more morsel from my recent research forays into religion and magnetism? Is the Egyptian 'the Djed'** (the second most common magical implement in ancient magick/craft work) a linguistic leak close to 'the Jedi'? Now think about the extremely intelligent fellow who produced Star Wars we were just talking about a minute ago...Intentional clues, hidden in plain sight....your guess is as good as mine, of course...still...

** From Steve Preston's "A Closer Look at Ancient History, Book 6, page 257 "Don't believe for a moment that Egyptians just made up this unusual artifact. In ancient Sumeria we can find the same item drawn and etched on walls." And from page 261: "The Djed somehow made the user able to ride in the 'levitating god-star'".

Thus, it's not a huge stretch for me to tentatively figure that someone wielding this Djed thing would be a what? A Jedi maybe?


Back to point: Just from the old newsman's "news nose knows news" if I were making bets, I'd wager the Defense Department tests are to update software on the GPS constellation in order to do "testing" is one hell of an oddly timed event.

What? Tampa gets renumbered, a local sunrise is "off", Africa is tearing apart and Tony Ring's quake data has shown a major increase in what over the past six months?

I'm not certain what's going on, but if I were guessing, I'd bet there's some fancy new code going up on the birds to adjust carrier phase tracking of the GPS units so that few people on the ground notice differences in time (earth rotational spin) and location drift which might be noticed using differential GPS or wide area augmentation system-enhanced aviation models.

Cool thing bout GPS is people have come to rely on it to a very large extent. So if you're planning to do any flying in the Southeast USA in the NOTAM period, might want to at least be aware that the airplane you're on might not be making a GPS (WAAS) IFR approach - might be back on the dual VOR's.

Do you actually read anything on this site?...The answer you seek is within past posts..Maybe reading up a bit and checking whats being discussed before starting threads is best..

I do actually, and usually his market data is pretty spot on

I thought I would update that as I didn't like the way it sounded, but yes I do read stuff on this site all the time and while I admit it is possible that I missed something about GPS being affected by changes. I have no seen anyone post about GPS. I did find the forum about the government announcement by the FAA after I had written this forum post. So I do not see that as relevant to the subject at hand. I did also read the post about the Tampa airport and about the dead birds being affected by the GPS etc.

I will say however, that the poles have been shifting for as long as the earth has been around. In fact scientists have stated that the poles shift once every 200,000 yrs or so and we are long over due. I also watched the nice TnA videos of the blonde lady talking about how the Geomagnetic Field had a hole in it etc and that the birds and animals deaths could be related. I am also aware of the scientist who talked about similar events with solar flares etc..

So yes I would like to think that I am well versed on this site. So do you not think that time would be better spend posting in a positive way rather then trolling someone who rarely posts on there own in the first place?

There was an announcement yesterday from the FAA that the DoD is performing a series tests between January 20th and February 22nd and that to not rely on GPS systems. I would expect this to probably affect all GPS systems even though the announcement was from the FAA. The tests looks to cover a significant portion of southeastern US coast according to the map attached to the official announcement.

This was discussed here yesterday in this thread:
