    Thanks Frank.  I didn't want to be inundated with junk email from them for the privilege of reading the article.

    Any system which utilizes such a narrow frequency band is subject to jamming.  Widespread jamming requires a series of powerful transmitters (or just one).  No big secret there.

    There's "fine print". If you register, you can get access to 8 articles a month for free. So to read the article, follow the link and register:

    Alternatively, you can get at it, without registering, directly via Google News (though this probably varies by country). Go here:
    Then type 'Financial Times GPS' in the search box (or 'GPS site:ft.com') and search. It should be the first on the list of results. The full article title is "GPS pioneer warns on network’s security". After a few days, you may need to search on that full title.
