Cell Phone Jamming

Post by Bongo » Tue Jul 09, 2002 9:08 am

Now this is purely theoretical but I was wondering does anyone know where one would find info on creating this type of circuit? I am thinking you would just need to produce "pink noise" at operational frequencies but need better info.. Thanks all

Take the phone away from the user. Go upside his head with it. Simple and quick.

Why Pink noise? Why not White noise?

I was under the impression that the technology used in cell phones could read a signal rediculously far (30+dB) below the noise floor. It might be better to apply a brief (10mS) pulse from a 1kW or so magnetron in the direction of the offending radio. It will probably do slightly more damage to the device than the user.
