The jammer makes the use of mobile phones more restrained

The reporter first noticed. They were unable to call their editors to report the weddings of the rich and famous, and they asked the pastor why their cell phones were not available at the Sacred Heart Cathedral. His answer: Israel’s counterintelligence. Among the four churches in Monterrey, cell phone jammers the size of paperbacks made in Israel are hidden between Madonna’s paintings and saint statues.

From religious temples to the Indian Parliament, to theaters and local trains in Tokyo, more and more squeaky loud mobile phones sounded a hoarse roar. These devices were originally used to help security forces intercept and prevent phone-related Of the explosion. After politicians ignored the request to turn off their phones, the Indian parliament installed jammers and the Legislative Council was continuously disturbed.

In Italy, after discovering that cell phone addicted teenagers are cheating via text message or taking pictures for a test, they started using jammers. The four Roman Catholic churches in this northern city used Netline Communications Technologies Ltd. equipment. After importing its personal favors as priests from Tel Aviv insurance brokers. Archbishop Diocese spokesman Juan Jose Martinez said: “There are still many people who do not know that this is the moment to meet with God to attend the Mass.” “Unfortunately, we have no choice but to use these small devices .”

Their purchase price is about $2,000, and they can be opened via the remote control. The weak radio frequencies they emit can block cell phone signals within a 30-meter radius. The user receives the message “no service” or “signal not available” on the phone. Although Mexico has no laws against these devices, in the United States and most Western countries, it is illegal to use mobile phone blocking programs privately. But the trend is changing. Japan allows interference stations to be installed in public places such as theaters and concert halls, but only if they must obtain a government-issued license. Last week, the French Minister of Industry approved the decision to install a cinema, concert hall and theater, but only if an emergency call was made.

Canada had considered allowing the blockade under similar circumstances. Industry Canada, which regulates Telecommunications Canada, objected to this, saying that the device may infringe on individual freedom and damage public safety due to paralyzing communications with law enforcement and security agencies. Netline officials sold the first portable jammer in 1998. They said that they sold thousands of jammers each year and expanded their business to all parts of the world.

Tokyo-based Medic Inc. has sold thousands of wave wall jammers before the government stepped in and regulated its use in live performance venues. Commuters are still buying mobile jammers to keep the talking passengers silent, although using them is illegal. In Scotland, Ronnie McGuire, the owner of the electrical and electronic engineering services company, imported a mobile phone blocker made in Taiwan and sold it to hotels, restaurants and bars until a local newspaper reported that he was in Illegal activities in the UK.

McGuire announced that it will continue to import Taiwanese equipment, but will only sell it to countries that are allowed to export. Loreen Haim, Netline’s marketing and sales manager, will not disclose how many devices the company sells each year, or in which country it buys the most jammer equipment. Heim said that in Mexico, the main customers are banks that want to prevent potential predators from contacting their associates, and the Mexican government is planning to use them in prison.

In Monterrey, the Sacred Heart Church is a baroque temple popular with Mexican elites for weddings. Church officials purchased their jammers two years ago. The parish clerk Bulmaro Carranza said: “Whenever a wedding is held, the phone will ring every five minutes.” “This is a real problem because sometimes the groom even forgets to turn off the phone.” For months, this kind of The device was not noticed until the reporter who reported the wedding complained that their mobile phone would never work.

Carranza said that since the news of the jammer was made public, pastors from all over Mexico have been calling for information on how to obtain it. In the Sacred Heart, before each mass, the installation at the entrance of the church and the installation at the altar are opened. However, the pastor reminded the parishioners to turn off their mobile phones before starting service, hoping that good cell phone etiquette will eventually succeed. Martinez said that other Monterey churches with this kind of installation-Rosario, San Juan Bosco and Queen of Angels-were also affected by the wealthier Welcome to the parishioners.

Martinez said: “For many people, cell phones are a must, but this should not stop them from being good people and consider respecting sacred places.” Catholic Margarita Escobedo (Margarita Escobedo) Go to church at least twice a week and volunteer for the church in San Genaro. She said she will welcome disruptors in the community where cell phones are becoming annoying. Escobedo said: “Those who brought their phones to the church are not loyal to God.” “Prayers are very distracting, and suddenly birds chirp or listen to electronic music.”
