Comment from Richard Eastman CFI:

Appended are the two most recent GPS Testing Announcements. Now, you’d think that testing in Mountain Home, Idaho wouldn’t impact the LA Basin. But it does – at Flight Level 25 and above (only a few getting this message are likely to be up that high). But on the other hand, the Nevada Test Center testing on similar dates reaches the LA Basin at the 4000’ and above levels. While the testing dates are similar – the testing times are different. // Richard
