I've been Monitoring WAAS Satellite NMEA ID #38 (ANIK) for the last month. It has been broadcasting a signal on the last two Weekends but my Garmin 17HVS refuses to use it. Tonight 2006/05/03 I noticed that another satelight NMEA #51 was sending a signal and my GARMIN was reporting  Differential Mode. More investigation of the NMEA Messages showed it had the same Coordinates as #38. I appears that #38 is currently Operational as #51. Has anyone heard anything about this?

I know it was supposed to be activated in the Fall of 2006 and I was getting WAAS Differential Signals from #38 for a short period in March.  

I just found this interesting and wonder what others know about it.
