No, it's well and truly dead.  Of the people I know on the political and 
regulatory sides, not one thinks there is even the slightest possibility 
of a revival.  The only chance appears to be if, before the final "No" 
is set in stone, GPS suffered an actual (not hypothetical) breakdown and 
people died because the military or first responders couldn't do their jobs.

In many ways, it's reminiscent of the LightSquared fiasco, which also 
dragged on and on to its inevitable and universally foreseen (by people 
in the know) conclusion.

Best regards,
