Concerns about Galileo and Beidou

Yes to all. Later we will increase 26 signals to more. In fact 20 good signals is all we need. More than 20 will not help much.
I've heard you say this many times Javad. Most would expect the "more the better" but if I'm interpreting this correctly, the hope is the more Galileo and Beidou there are to "choose from", we the users will get the "best" 20 signals - eliminating marginal signals with higher and more severe interference and multipath?

you are exactly right. The more signal, the better chance we have to choose the best 20. or 26. 20 "good" signal is much better than 40 mixed (good and bad) signals. By "bad" I mean signals that are affected by multipath and fading. One signal may be "good" now, and "bad" 10 seconds later.
