More likely (and has been documented in the past) a high harmonic of the
RX's LO is leaking out, and as the GPS signals are barely above noise
anyway, it doesnt take much to disrupt them.

If you're using a Garmin GPS V, I can jam it with my FM broadcast radio
on 94.3MHz at 50 ft.  I imagine the IF freq's are mixing. Took me the
longest to figure out why in the morning drive I could not get a fix,
but the afternoon drive no problem (different stations morning and
evening) of course this was pre-Sirus...
