Jammers are still used with caution in sensitive locations

One such man of the cloth, Father Michele Madonna, became so incensed by phones going off during services at his church in Naples, Italy that he ended up installing a jamming device to shut them up.”Whenever there was a wedding, cell phones would ring every five minutes,” said Bulmaro Carranza, a parish clerk. “It was a real problem because there were times when even the groom would forget to turn his cell phone off.”

On a legal standpoint, the DroneDefender seems to be in a grey area. According to FCC regulations, federal law prohibits the operation, marketing, or sale of any type of wifi blocker equipment, including devices that interfere with cellular and Personal Communication Services (PCS), police radar, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and wireless networking services (Wi-Fi).

The mobile jammer is a device which transmits the signals to the same frequency. The jamming section is successful when the area of the mobile phone signal is disabled if the jammer is on. Nowadays the mobile users are increasing day by day, hence the mobile phone jammer devices are becoming civilian by comparing with the electronic devices to disable the mobile signals in specific locations.

According to a senior ECIL official, the German jammers were found to be very effective when installed for VVIP security, in prisons and other sensitive establishments. “We have installed them in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand central prisons where a large number of Maoists are lodged in high security blocks. The security protocol of the Jharkhand Chief Minister includes these gadgets…they have placed order for more jammers now,” the official who preferred not to be quoted said.

When someone hears about cellphone jammers, you might have an initial overall negative impression. After all, why would someone want to cut off the communication of cell phone users? The reality is, there are really many reasons to consider using a cell phone signal jammer — and within a variety of settings.
