    New Jammer Looks Like a Cellphone

    A new GSM cell phone jammer, the SH066 that is designed to look like another cell phone has been launched.

    The jammer has an output power of about 20mW and an effective range of up to 10 - 15 meters radius in optimum conditions, depending on the type and location of cellular system.


    The cell phone jammer cannot be sold to UK customers

    This cell phone jammer looks just like a cell phone and is ideal for use when commuting on the bus and train or when eating in restaurants etc, anywhere where you need effective control at close quarters!


    With this cell phone jammer switched on in your pocket you will be able to silence those anti-social types who insist on using their mobile phones in the most indiscrete way, the beauty is that they will not know it is you that has switched them off!, all they will see is that their signal has dropped on their phone.

    When you have had your meal or enjoyed your coffee in peace and quiet, you can then switch off your phone jammer and continue on your way completely stress free.
    Anybody ever think of purchasing one of these?

    While it's nice to think about for cell phones, will it affect anything else out there? If a person has a cardiac pacemaker, could it screw up the settings and we end up killing a person at the next table at the restaurant?

    doubtful, since it's probably just sending out garbled versions of the exact signals cell phones send out.

    But talk about the perfect murder!

    no. the kind of person that uses this is just as inconsiderate as the fool yapping away on his cell, if not more so. You are in a public place that you share with other people. Who are you to dictate what other people can and can not do? Using a cell phone jammer is incredibly selfish. What if you are dining next to a doctor who is on call, and your selfish desire to stuff groceries in your maw without hearing other people causes her to miss a life or death call?

    The only good way to reduce annoying cell calls is to get enough people to agree that it is a bad thing. Much the way we are cutting back on smoking. 'Til then stand next to them and play your music just as loud as their chat, no louder. When they complain say "I did not complain about your chat disrupting my music." Or you and a friend start a loud conversation next to them. Cell users might consider getting throat mikes.

    Picture this:

    Nascar Ned is toddlin along the road yappin on his cell. Being the law abiding citizen of New York state, he's utilizing a hands free device. Smug Sammy, thinking he's in the right, is employing his new cell phone jammer while he cycles along the road. As Ned approaches Roy, his cellular service cuts off. He glances down to see what might have happened. Temporarily distracted, he rear ends Sam sending him ass over elbows into the ditch.

    Poetic justice?
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I completely agree, I'm involved with several organizations that request personnel via cell phones rather than pagers during/after emergencies. And what about those of us that may utilize text messaging, not while driving, but while in some place so we don't have to yack on our phones? I do hear people talking about the dumbest stuff on their phones sometimes, but I'd probably still hear the same thing if the other person on the phone was actually there with them so...

    Our school had these put up in our school at the beggining of the year to stop students from using their phones.

    Took maybe 3 weeks for them to be found and stolen/broken.

    How about the call from my the care taker of my son with a disability saying he is in the hospital, having a seizure, etc., and we are needed there immediately?

    Yes, it happened a few years back, when my wife and I were in a movie theater. We got some really nasty glances as we left the theater, but we made it to the hospital on time.

    When I go into a theater or restaurant, I put mine on vibrate. That way I'm still available, but I'm not interrupting everyone else's life..

    There are lots of coverage holes (especially in buildings), so it would be a mistake for people to think that having a cell enables them to receive/make all calls necessary for a life or death situation. If you're not in an area that's heavily populated/traveled, you won't get any digital coverage. This jammer only does GSM, but it doesn't say which frequencies, since there are several used in the US.

    I'm going to guess it won't work with CDMA which is a huge part of the cell market in the US, and I don't know if it will work with TDMA or iDEN (though maybe some BF geek will chime in).

    I suspect that dropping a call for an already distracted driver will distract them more.

    Now something that would set off a radar detector would be cool, since you'd expect the natural reaction would be to look to the sides of the road to find the cop.

    Well, pin a rose on your nose!

    As I said this was several years ago when we had bag phones that didn't vibrate.

    Yeah... my mother is an on-call nurse, and if she isn't able to receive an emergency call that could be a big problem. I mean, being in a place with no service would be the same situation, but if someones willingly jamming that signal for their own means, its a bit selfish. Lead by example and not through being a jackass (unless of course that is the example).

    Geez. I've only been usiing cell phones since they came in a big bag with a 3.5 watt signal with analog only. Imagine, I never knew the above. Thanks so much. Hey, you learn something every day.

    Oh, BTW, what alternative do you suggest?

    1) Never go anywhere where there isn't a land-line phone immediately available?

    2) Never go anywhere?

    3) Stick around the hospital?

    4) Never let your son with a disability do anything with someone else? Hey, he is 39 and I am 67. Maybe we need to break the strings some day?

    5) Take your chances that perhaps you will not have cell phone coverage? Around here, in the Denver metro area, we have about 99% coverage, even inside big buildings. In fact, I can't remember the last time I couldn't get a call. If I am outside of the call reception are (i.e., bicycling in a mountain canyon) I make it a point to check the answering machine when I do have coverage, that is, provided some yokel with a "jammer" isn't some place nearby messing with the signal.

    Want to make someone on a cell near you move away? Make it obvious that you're eavesdropping on their conversation.

    Sounds like there may be a bigger problem than cell phones in your classroom. What else can the students do with impunity in your classroom? Maybe you need a license to use a (stun) *** with impunity, eh?

    Well, I taught in middle school, and had absolutely no problems removing cell phones used in my classroom. The school had a rule against them being used during school time. Period. They were confiscated, taken to the office, and the parent had to pick up the cell phone.

    So you don't even try to enforce the rules? They SHOULD be laughing at you...
