What are Signal Jammers and What Can They Do?
Signal jammers are used by those who want to interrupt or dislocate radio signals. Usually, people use signal jammers to disrupt cellular phones from receiving and transmitting signals. These signal jammers are wireless and can be used in any location to disable cellular phones. And it is not only cell phones that there interfere with, but these signal jammers can also interfere with your wireless local area network or WLAN signals. Because of this ability to interfere with wireless local area network signals, manufacturers have also developed other types of jammers like Bluetooth jammers and Wi-Fi and wireless video jammers. If you have high-tech and sophisticated signal jammers, you can ever jam satellites.
Usually, devices which are in good working condition will make it difficult for signal jammers to interfere with its signals. It is not only individuals who use signal jammers, the government also uses these and regulars its use and they only use it for jamming cellular phone communication lines. These jammers only affect the receiving end of the cell phone and the base station itself. Since its electromagnetic field is relatively small, it is not known to have any adverse effect on the human body, nor can it damage the cell phone itself. There can only be health risks if you use bigger signal jammers like outdoor signal stations.
The most common of all signal jammer is the one used to jam cell phone signals. The cellular phone is prevented from receiving signals from its base station, and this is done by blocking radio waves. The distance covered by this signal jammer is from 10 meters to a kilometer.
Another commonly used signal jammer is the GPS signal jammer. The military uses GPS jammers in order to confuse GPS tracking locations. This type of tracking system cannot be homemade. Civilian makes use of these jammers to hide or cover up their locations and that of their vehicle if they don’t want it to be tracked by a GPS receiver. A civilian GPS jammer usually covers up to 10 meters only.
Bluetooth jammers are integrated with multi-functional jammers which is able to jam Wi-Fi signals and video. These jammers can interfere and disable wireless LAN, Bluetooth devices, and video transmitting for privacy.
These signal jammers are relatively low priced and this is the reason why it has gained popularity …
