DHS/FCC Warns of Interference Caused by Signal Jammers

Date: 2015-01-08
Share |

Signal jammers are illegal and can interfere with operational channels commonly used by first responders, disrupting vital communications or affecting emergency operation. There have been documented incidents of the loss of first responder radio communications near areas where cell and GPS jammers were being used. Loss of cellular coverage was also observed in these areas which prevented 9-1-1 and other emergency calls from being made. Jammers can target cellular, GPS, Wif-Fi, and other radio signals, individually or in combination.

The DHS and the FCC have recently collaborated to develop a new Infographic that defines indications of radio jamming, what actions can be taken, and what information should be relayed when reporting a jamming incident to the FCC.
