Reports from the South Korean military’s annual report to parliament revealed that on March 4, during the major US-South Korea annual drill, North Korea forced a US spy plane to make an emergency landing.
According to officials, the plane’s GPS system failed because of jamming signals broadcast in North Korea’s cities of Haeju and Kaesong. It was forced to land just 45 minutes after it took off.
The jamming also caused problems for South Korean naval patrol boats and people in the capital city of Seoul complained of poor cell phone connections during the drill.
Tensions between North and South Korea had been rising during the period, and South Korean officials repeatedly announced new military drills along the tense naval border for several months leading up to the incident.

So cute, they were LOST…!!!
I guess the FedGov doesn't teach its pilots how to navigate with their eyes and a map anymore, probably because the video game generation thinks it would be so b…o…r…i…n…g. All that time wasted looking at instruments and the map and the terrain, time that could be better used to look for kids on bicycles to strafe.
quantitative military edge is the term i think they call it… ohh wait…
Let me get this straight: N. Korea´s electronic warfare defeated both the US and S. Korean electronic warfare? And they did all of this without leaving their own borders? I´m impressed.
As we like to say in the soaring community, "Lost is slow."
DARKNESS — “Reports from the South Korean military’s”
Pure propaganda surely, an illusion of light that is the absolute worse kind of darkness. For in the Western world, except for ultra-liberal media such as AntiWar.com, a complete blackout is there on all light that could force the darkness to give way.
For the US Empire is now engaged in a massive propaganda blitz to reestablish its lost dominance in Asia, and making North Korea appear to be a world power to contend with — this is of highest priority.
And if N. Korea can jam our navigation systems, might that give one pause to wonder what an accomplished adversary might be able to do? (I'm looking at China and Russia- who knows what they have tucked away for a rainy day- and who might they have shared their technology with?)
The drones are tip of the the Airforce from Hell. If they can be jammed down, good-oh! Really, every mud hut should have a jammer. Watch who disagrees. Take notes!
(1) GPS is a position locating system that functions by high frequency carrier signals that come straight down from satellites in outer space. Hardened against all interference they have always been and most electronic experts would accuse South Korea of reporting fiction.
(2) The US Empire is now engaged in a massive propaganda blitz to reestablish its lost dominance in Asia, and making North Korea appear to be a world power to contend with — this is of highest priority.
(3) In my 71 years in this ingrate world, not once have I seen a military give a report that was anything put propaganda.
(4) For an absolute, no military will release a report that is detrimental to itself.
(5) If the our military could convince Congress that this report was true, then it would be good for a $4 billion increase in military funding to save our homeland from such terrorism.
What the hell are we doing in South Korea anyway? Bring the troops home and mind our own damn business!
The North Koreans have also allegedly brought down AmeroCon drones with jamming.
You people better learn something from those North Koreans because your rulers are starting to use flying drones to keep tabs on YOU.
