    It is not signal transmission but control/communications stations. Satellite signals won't be affected.

    An interesting move. So, Russia has decided to sanction itself? I have never minded using a comp**** I wonder what other Russians think. Any, can you explain what you mean?
    I would suggest we also ban computers and return typewriters. Preferably mechanical ones, to save on electricity.

    No, typewriters were also invented by rotten West. We'll use goose quills.

    You joke here, but I can see how that would drastically limit the power of the media to dominate people's minds. The people that voluntarily did this would become a people freer than any other in the long run.

    If these things are switched off, use of GPS in Russia will become substantially more unreliable, regardless of this being ground stations

    Местоположение устройства с приемником определяется путем вычисления расстояния от него до нескольких спутников, расположение которых известно. Расстояние вычисляется измерением задержки радиосигнала - разницы между временем отправки сигнала со спутника и временем получения этого сигнала на Земле. При этом важно максимально точно определить координаты самих спутников - для этого и нужны наземные станции. Дело в том, что Земля не является идеальным шаром, поэтому прогнозировать орбиты спутников на продолжительное время невозможно: любые модели расчетов имеют погрешности и нуждаются в периодической корректировке с помощью наземных станций.

    I guess we'll see more plane crashes in Russia when fuel runs out and not finding the airport when GPS is turned off.

    Since when GPS has became the basic nav system on airplanes?
