How the gps jammers work?

GPS signal jammers are portable devices that literally means gadgets that stop a GPS tracking device from receiving the signal that without which they cannot pick up their position.

How can you block the transmitter signal?

Transmit another signal using the same carrier frequency to interfere with the original signal...also known as "jamming". If you have two signals using the same carrier frequency, and you add a second signal source with the same carrier frequency, and an a stronger amplitude (intensity), but different signal data, then it mixes with the original signal at the receiving end, and the original signal cannot be clearly decoded.

How is radio altitude determined by in aircraft?

There are two ways to do it, first and the most accurate is by satellite GPS, the GPS receiver have to log on to 3 or more satellites and it can determine the precise coordinates and even the speed it is flying, the other one is by sending a signal out and wait for the bounced signal and measure the time from sending to receiving the signal but that will only give the height above ground level and not above sea level
