Most jamming in unintentional. For example a TV news station sets up a
remote truck and aims the truck's microwave antenna right at your GPS
antenna. Your GPS would be down but only for hours or a day or so. Or
in some other case a transmitter on the same tower as your GPS fails in a
way that causes it jam everything nearby. THese things happen.
There are about a quarter million cell towers in the US alone so these one
in a million events do happen frequenty. But if you only own one GPS
receiver the changes of it happening even once is remote.
