The Air Force is planning another test for GPS PRN 19.

This test will activate C/A on L2 to test interaction 

with radar systems.  The state of health flag will be

set to "UNHEALTHY" during the test.  This test is not expected 

to be noticed with standard GPS receivers, since such 

equipment should not process data from unhealthy satellites. 


The tests will be conducted July 9-12, 2001, while the

satellite is over CONUS.  Planned test times roughly

span 00:25 through 08:27 UTC on those 4 days.  Test

operations may end early if necessary.


Please note that this test is distinct from the Digital

Distortion Anomaly Test (DDAT).  The review of procedures

for the DDAT is still in progress.  We will post a notice

when we get more information on the DDAT.
