What are Signal Jammers and What Can They Do?

Signal jammers are gadgets that are used mainly to interrupt or dislocate radio signals. Signal jammers are commonly used by people who wish to disrupt people from transmitting and receiving signals from their cell phones. If you want to disable someone’scellular phone, it will be easy for you to do it because these signal jammers are wireless and they can be used anywhere. Wireless local area networks or WLAN signals can also be intercepted by these signal jammers. 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. Now, even satellites can be jammed; you only need to have high-tech and sophisticated types of signal jammers to do so.

If an electronic device is in good working condition, it will be difficult for signal jammers to interfere with them. Government also uses and regulates these signal jammers and are intended to jam cellular phone communication lines only. 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. With bigger signal jammers however, like outdoor signal stations, there can be health risks if you use them.

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. It is not possible to make homemade GPS signal jammers. 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 GPS signal jammer for civilians usually reach only up to ten meters.

Bluetooth jammers are integrated with multi-functional jammers which is able to jam Wi-Fi signals and video. 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. A simple cellular phone signal jammers usually costs less than fifty dollars for the cheapest ones and a little less than a hundred and fifty for the more expensive ones.
