What are Signal Jammers and What Can They Do?
Signal jammers are gadgets that are used mainly to interrupt or dislocate radio signals. The most common use of signal jammers is to disrupt cell phones from receiving and transmitting signals. It is easy to disable cellular phones with these signal jammers because they are wireless and they can be used in any location. You can also use it to interfere with wireless local area networks or WLAN. Because of its ability to interfere with WLAN signals, it has led to the development of other types of signal jammers like Bluetooth jammers, Wi-Fi and wireless video jammers also. 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. The government is also using these signal jammers and they regulate its use, and the only use for their signal jammers is for interfering with cellular phone communication lines. It is only the receiving end of the cell phone and its base station that is affected by a signal jammer. The electromagnetic wave of a signal jammer is relatively small that it does not really have an effect on the human body or on 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. When the signal jammer blocks the radio waves, the cell phone is prevented from receiving them from the base station. Signal jammers cover a distance from 10 meters to one kilometer.
The GPS signal jammer is another commonly used jammer. The military uses GPS jammers in order to confuse GPS tracking locations. There are no homemade tracking systems like this. If a person does not want to be tracked by a GPS receiver, he can use a GPS signal jammers in order to hide his location and the location of his vehicle. A civilian GPS jammer usually covers up to 10 meters only.
in order to jam Wi-Fi signals and video, people use Bluetooth jammers which are usually integrated with multi-functional jammers. It disrupts and disables wireless LAN, Bluetooth devices, and video transmitting, for privacy.
Because of the low prices of these signal jammers, more and more people are using them repeatedly and is gaining a wide following.
You can find websites online that sells signal jammers are affordable costs. Cellular phone jammers are the least expensive ones with the more affordable costing only less than fifty dollars and the higher priced is less than a hundred fifty.
