    Got this Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs) today. Appears there will be a period of GPS interference testing between October 14-27 centered in Ft. Walton Beach, FL and extending out at 186 nautical miles at 50ft AGL (Above Ground Level) and other altitudes at various distances. Handy to know if you are flying an aircraft or drone. I know the text indicates 50FT AGL but I wonder if it could cause issues with other ground navigation systems.
