How do you solve a problem like Galileo? With a strap-on L-band payload, of course!

Re: Hirzon angles??

And that's why EGNOS is a joke. You can't get much signal from geostationary satellites on a mobile receiver in these northern climes unless you're in an open area. I remember when EGNOS first came online and the GPS receivers I worked with (u-blox, pretty damn good ones) started using the augmentation data, the end result of which was to make the fix less accurate rather than more. In the end we had to disable augmentation in the receivers.
