Cell Phone jamming in your area - not all types are illegal

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by Luchini, Oct 6, 2004.

    It's important to note that not all "jamming" is illegal. There are two
    types, active and passive. The website you listed refers to active jamming
    which is illegal as you are operating a device in a frequency for which you
    do not hold a license.

    However, some businesses (mostly new movie theaters) are using passive
    jamming. This can be established with a thin metal mesh that is place in the
    walls of the building when it is being built. This mesh prevents the signal
    from penetrating. This type of "jamming" is legal as there is no
    unauthorized use of the specturm to do this.

    Just food for thought.

    Thanks for the info. I believe that technology is called a "Faraday
    Cage". A lot of government buildings are constructed this way for
    security reasons.

    Building a structure that doesn't let signals in isn't the same thing as jamming.

    My church has an active jammer. There isn't a cell phone in the world
    that can get a signal on a Sunday within those walls.
