Here's something that just occurred
to me after reading about the suicide bombings in Bali over the
Cellphone jammers do not place calls to cellphones - they block
calls. Could it be that the people looking to build jammers, who
seem to be mostly from areas like India, Pakistan, etc., are looking
to build devices to protect themselves in public places? If I lived
in an area prone to such attacks, having a cellphone blocker operating
that could prevent remote detonation calls from being received within
a radius of a few hundred feet would be very appealing. The inconvenience
to everybody else pales in comparison.
Of course, now that
I think about it while writing this post, it is possible that the
bad guys want them to prevent their own devices from going off prematurely
while being delivered to the scene of the crime.
It is a
shame that a handful of terrorists, supported by many large OPEC
countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran, can commandeer such wonderful
technologies that are the hard work of respectable people, and exploit
them for harm. I've asked the question before: Why does the vast
majority of the world's population not band together to utterly
destroy the sect that finds it eternally rewarding to kill innocents?
Those people should be utterly afraid to ever make their intentions
known, and be dealt with in an overwhelming manner when caught perpetrating
an act of terrorism.
What is your opinion?

Yeah Kurt I see your point
about wanting to protect themselves. I actually thought the same
thing. But I didn't consider your counterpoint about using the damn
things to keep the bombs from going off during the delivery phase.
Maybe you should delete all the jammer posts. Hard to say where
someone's right free speech on the forum is trumphed by my right
to keep living.
That news about the suicide bomber in OK
City is disturbing, since it was learned that he had Jihad material
from the mosque down the road in his apartment. I got that off the
Internet. CNN never even mentioned it.

point about using mobile phones is they are cheap, very available,
they can be set off by ringing the number from anywhere, they hide
among all the ligit RF clutter, and the vibrator or ringer is ready
made to mis-apply. It is not the tool of a suicider!
the methods of spectrum use, is civilian EW jamming now a kind of
street norm? I can take a free speech from a potential jammer, provided
it is just a speech. An act of jamming is hardly that, and casual
jamming/jammer construction is hard to justfy in any civilised social
Hell, the spectrum is jammed up enough. Why does
anyone think they can arrogate to themselves the right to "jam"
anything? Is this a feedthrough from the videogames culture? Is
it "I'm gonna jam your block unless you pay me"? What?
would never provide a HowTo for a jammer!
