'[EE]:Barometer & Altimeter --> GPS'

Remember y'all ("you all") - you're ("you are") using "C/A Code"
as opposed to "P Code" to do this position determination, too!

C/A - Course/Acquisition Code, used initially to "lock-in"
(acquire) on the GPS SS signal *from which* one would normally
(as originaly envisioned) transitioning to using "P Code".

Chip rate for C/A code is 1.023 MHz

P Code - precision Code. Used for *precise* postioning. What is
currently being done with C/A code alone is way past the orgiginal
intentions of the GPS system designers!

Chip rate for P Code is 10x the C/A code rate, or 10.23 MHz.

*Nor* are you using [the] L2 [frequency] of 1227.6 MHz to account
for/offset the effects of RF transmission through the atmosphere ...

All in all, civilian applications are accessing only *a fraction* of
what the GPS system *is* currently supplying in the way of capability
and signals to the military (and certain qualified civilian applications).

Care to disclose the encryption keys for the military signal?  Someone
has to have broken it by now...
