Subject: [OSM-talk] GPS banned in Egypt

Hi,

   probably not news to most of you but until recently I had assumed 
that only a few outlandish places like China and Saudi Arabia had banned 
GPSes; now I read that Egypt - hitherto regarded by Y.T. as an at least 
halfway civil place - has had a GPS ban in place for 5 years now:
