    Hi Peter:
    It's my understanding that the LORAN-C system will be kept as a backup to GPS for WAAS.
    The other satellite based nav systems are so similar to GPS that all of them 
    would be rendered useless by a jammer.
    The current issue of GPS World has an article on how various types of jamming 
    effect various receivers.  Bottom line, ALL GPS
    receivers are susceptible to jamming, it's just a question of how much power.
