For that matter, why is the GPS system still working, and why does it
work inside a *mountain*.

  Many people claim that alcohol clouds the senses.  Poor fools.  When I have
  liquor in my veins, it is the only time that I can see matters clearly.
  The more alcohol, the more clear everything becomes.
  I have been seeing matters with startling clarity as of late.

The satellites are still in orbit, and still available to anyone with the power
to get to them.

And as for accessing them from inside the mountain...in both cases, we clearly
see Markus (or Lee) plugging the phone (a smaller version of the contemporary
sat-phones) into a plug marked EXT. ANT. for exterior antenna.

So we covered that.
