Wow. I've read some seriously deluded crap on here, but that's just nuts.

Actually, not over fish at all. China is trying to create an exclusive area for basing naval vessels, particularly submarines. This is similar to Russia's Black Sea. It's easier to find a submarine if you track it from where it's starting from. Having a broader base area increases the odds of going undetected.

Re: Break Out the Sextants

Last time I took a sight I found the fix came out way off. Later I found a jar of strawberry jam was left open, accidentally, by my crew.

You cannot trust Koreans. You cannot trust Koran. They all jam, conspire and multiply.

I watched PSY's 'Got it from my Daddy' yesterday and wondered how did he get junior to feature?

;-)

Jamming GLONASS is as easy as jamming GPS. You just use a different frequency.

Re: Break Out the Sextants

I guess we all need to go back to keeping a DR. Every body should also keep their knot logs their are time you can't see the stars and the refresh time is slower than we are unto.😎
