Illegal mobile phone and GPS jammer crackdown by regulator y

Postby knuckles » Sun Jul 21, 2013 4:30 pm

Australia's communications regulator has destroyed nearly 100 illegal signal jammers that stop mobile phone and GPS devices from working correctly after seizing them in the mail.

The jammers were found in intercepted international mail parcels between November 2011 and mid June 2012 after an Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) crackdown.

yeah far easier than making them, and they're not particularly hard to modify either. I didn't even realise they were banned. I know where you can get them. I'd order one anyway.

Yeah taken from the ACMA:
4. Are jammers illegal?
Yes.The use, possession and operation of these devices are prohibited. An individual can be imprisoned for up to two years if found guilty of supplying, possessing or operating a prohibited device and organisations can be fined up to $165,000 (1,500 penalty units).Further, an individual can be imprisoned for up to five years if found guilty of causing interference likely to endanger the safety of another person or cause another person to suffer or incur substantial loss or damage, and organisations can be fined $550,000 (5,000 penalty units).
