Since then it's been ok. The signal levels on all RX'd channels is also significantly better than this morning. I haven't deleted or added any extra gear in the vehicle in recent times. I did actually turn a few things off, sat back and waited for any changes. But no. I had a good look and check of all connectors, swapped out the active GPS antenna for another - same result. Went over the whole vehicle. All part of the fun... :-))

I wonder if LightSquared (http://www.gps.gov/spectrum/lightsquared/) is doing any unpublicised testing in Australia :-)
