GPS Elemets No Longer Available

A US Military official notified the media on Thursday, April 1, that
effective immediately, all GPS orbital elements would no longer be made
public. GPS satellites would no longer transmit this information since
possible enemies would then know where the military satellite is. The
official regretted the inconvenience of GPS receivers now not functioning,
but said it was necessary.

April fools?
