Not sure what is up with that link but a box popped up trying to run a program in some manner I have never seen before.

Maybe someone can explain it, or maybe it's something to beware of

Beware very Beware!!! Never click anything from somebody who just signed up and only has 2 posts...especially anybody who has "cell phone jammer" to click on. These particular spammers get on this forum several times a week with a new ID until a moderator blows them up.

Please use the "report to moderator" link in the body of the spam message, even if you are not sure. Bennie is exactly right. Beware indeed.

I  will do that

I don't think any harm was done to my  machine. Lucky maybe.

Seems like I read somewhere that  using these jammers was illegal anyway, I guess what  got  my  curiosity up  was why are they selling something that is prohibited?

Hmmm, I've noticed a lot of that sort of thing going on. Why, some people even sell RAW MILK!!! The horror.  :wub:

IIUC, tracking devices sometimes placed on cars by the police receive GPS signals and then retransmit their position on some frequency monitored by the police. The jammer would prevent this device from getting a fix on its position, so it would either go silent or transmit some sort of "error" code. Your vehicle could probably still be tracked down by cops using direction-finding equipment tuned to the tracking device's output frequency.

On the other hand, if a tracking device is attached to your vehicle, you're already in some trouble: apparently you're on someone's radar. If you take countermeasures without actually going into hiding, they presumably know where you live, and can reinstall the tracking device or take other measures.

If someone puts a tracking device on your vehicle without your permission, and without a court order,
could it be considered abandoned property? If so, I don't think they would have a legal leg to stand on
if you discovered it and decided to see what  makes it tick. (I'd like to know what frequency it uses to
report the position.)

Is it just me, or does the idea of removing it and attaching it to a cop car strike you as funny too?

I've never been raided, yet!

I have read that very often  when a raid is about to take place cell phones in the neighborhood stop working.

Very often at least around here you can observe cops talking on their cell phones while driving. If you  have a scanner running you  soon  learn that anything they want to remain confidential they discuss on their cells. Maybe that is why they  want  to have exclusive access to such devices,

It's evident to  see where such  a device might be useful in the other camp.

So, a question might be, "is it  illegal to own one, or just to use one? "

The ideas could be limitless. Put it on the mayors car. With  the number of mayors who are serving time or have served time that trail  could lead to about anywhere.

The flash mobs in Britain last year ran the coppers/ bobbies pretty ragged, that was due to cell phones and texting amongst the crown subjects........

50 ft range cell/ gps jammer would be a public service given the multitasking habit I see folks indulging in when in traffic (Walking or on the road).

If you do, get a CDMA version for the US, and turn it on sparingly and judiciously. An irascible slinger ask >>$64 question.
As badly as the country needs a cheap, reliable inducer of peace and quiet, the big lobbying guns of big stupid corporations go full auto at any suggestion the worst and dimmest can't purchase all the bandwidth they can squander.
