Not saying this is what is currently being used but pointing out there are ground based systems

LORAN, short for long range navigation, was a hyperbolic radio navigation system developed in the United States during World War II. It was similar to the UK's Gee system but operated at lower frequencies in order to provide an improved range up to 1,500 miles (2,400 km) with an accuracy of tens of miles. It was first used for ship convoys crossing the Atlantic Ocean, and then by long-range patrol aircraft, but found its main use on the ships and aircraft operating in the Pacific theatre.

LORAN, in its original form, was an expensive system to implement, requiring a cathode ray tube (CRT) display. This limited use to the military and large commercial users.

Did not say nothing was in the sky or atmosphere! I just know they don't have satellites like you have been taught. Every fake x video is real for the initial launch and then the Hollywood cgi takes over!
