    N.Korea Jammed U.S. Reconnaissance Plane GPS A U.S. military reconnaissance aircraft made an emergency landing during annual South Korea-U.S. military exercises in March when North Korea jammed its GPS device, it emerged Thursday. According to a report the Defense Ministry submitted to Democratic Party lawmaker Ahn Kyu-baek of the National Assembly's Defense Committee, the RC-7B took off from its base at 8:30 p.m. on March 4 but had to make an emergency landing about 45 minutes later due to disruption of its GPS functions by jamming signals transmitted from Haeju and Kaesong in North Korea at intervals of five to...

    N. Korea jams GPS signals to disrupt Korea-U.S. drills: sources SEOUL, March 6 (Yonhap) -- North Korea recently jammed GPS signals in South Korea in an apparent bid to disrupt Seoul's annual military drills with U.S. forces, government sources said Sunday. GPS signals in Seoul and nearby cities, including Incheon and Paju, were temporarily disrupted on Friday afternoon, causing mobile phones and certain military equipment in the area to malfunction, the sources said. "My understanding is that errors were detected in a very few equipment within the telecom industry," a defense official said. "Some measurement equipment in artillery units was...
  • After raising the idea, Department of Transportation says it’s not interested in cell phone jamming

    If education and awareness don’t work, the Department of Transportation Secretary has some other interesting ideas on how to lower the number of distracted drivers careening down the pavement. It seems people still haven’t gotten the voicemail about the dangers of cell phone use in cars and if the trend continues, the Department of Transportation may have to do something about it — like forcibly disabling your Blackberry. While Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood stressed personal responsibility in a recent TV appearance, the Secretary said the department was “looking into” other technological possibilities.
  • FReeper Request: Conservative Talk Radio Being Jammed? (VANITY)

    For several weeks, we have been having trouble listening to Beck, Rush, and Hannity (and usually only those) in our area. Our local station is 1210AM, and seemingly a few seconds after each show starts a nasty interference kicks in and only stops after Hannity is finished. Tonight is unusual in that it's happening right now. It only seems to happen here in Delaware County (PA), according to my father.

    The U.S. Air Force on May 27 successfully launched the first of a new generation of GPS satellites aboard a Delta 4 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., the service announced May 28. The GPS 2F-1 satellite was placed into a roughly 17,600-kilometer orbit and joins an operational constellation of 30 previous-generation GPS satellites, the Air Force press release said. The GPS 2F satellites are more powerful than previous GPS satellites, generating more robust, jam-resistant signals, according to prime contractor Boeing Space and Intelligence Systems of Seal Beach, Calif. The satellites will also provide a third civil signal...

    Lexington Institute ^ | 4/14/2010 | Loren B. Thompson, Ph.D.
    In the years since the Cold War ended, the U.S. military has become heavily dependent upon satellite communications to maintain its global connectivity. Without such links, it would be difficult for the military to operate in a coordinated fashion or exchange information critical to situational awareness. Defense experts have repeatedly warned that the availability of space-based communications could be compromised in future conflicts by the fact that 80-90% of all military traffic is transmitted on vulnerable commercial satcom channels. However, there is a related problem that far fewer military observers have noticed: only about 1% of defense communications today are...

    Few issues are more personal to soldiers than the question of whether they can trust their rifles. And few rifles in history have generated more controversy over their reliability than the American M-16 assault rifle and its carbine version, the M-4. In recent weeks, a fresh round of complaints about weapon malfunctions in Afghanistan, mentioned in an Army historian’s report that documented small-arms jamming during the fierce battle in Wanat last year, has rekindled the discussion. Are the M-16 and M-4 the best rifles available for American troops? Or are they fussy and punchless and less than ideal for war?...

The case against James Tobin, of Bangor, Maine, came to a quiet conclusion last week with the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissing an appeal by prosecutors.

    As President Obama's motorcade rolled down Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day, federal authorities deployed a closely held law enforcement tool: equipment that can jam cellphones and other wireless devices to foil remote-controlled bombs, sources said. It is an increasingly common technology, with federal agencies expanding its use as state and local agencies are pushing for permission to do the same. Police and others say it could stop terrorists from coordinating during an attack, prevent suspects from erasing evidence on wireless devices, simplify arrests and keep inmates from using contraband phones. But jamming remains strictly illegal for state and local agencies....

    Police put in tight jam Cellphone jammers might silence annoying public chat, but they also risk officers' safety By BETH JOHNSTON, SUN MEDIA The Mounties have warned every police agency in the country about cellphone jammers after two Quebec officers were left with two suspects and dead radios on a darkened highway shoulder last month. It was Oct. 15 and the Quebec City police officers had stopped a car whose occupants they believed were connected with organized crime. When they approached the car, they saw "a suspicious device" on its door, police sources said. The suspects told police they bought...

    Israel is awash with speculation over the mysterious disappearance of satellite television signals, with everyone from the Russians to the United Nations accused of jamming the population's nightly entertainment. The television network is said to be "near collapse" after a month of electronic snowstorms and interference, rumoured to be variously caused by the radar of UN patrols, Russian spy ships or even Israel's military. The interference began on Sept 6, the day Israeli warplanes slipped past Syria's Russian-made air defence systems, and attacked a military target deep inside the country. The Israeli government has maintained an almost total silence over...

    Many people are asking why virtually the entire faculty of a midwest university would support two openly homosexual professors in their outrageous effort to brand a librarian a "sexual harasser" solely because he recommended my book, "The Marketing of Evil," as required reading for freshmen. Most people, when they first hear this story, assume something else must have happened to instigate a formal sexual harassment investigation. Surely, they think, the librarian must have groped a colleague or made a lewd comment to a student. But no, he was accused of being a sexual harasser just because he did what librarians...

    Video about Falun Gong interrupts Chinese state TVAP , HONG KONG Wednesday, Jul 06, 2005,Page 1 China's state television broadcasts were interrupted for nearly 15 minutes by video about the banned Falun Gong spiritual group, a spokesman for a Hong Kong-based satellite company said yesterday. Falun Gong -- which China has labeled an "evil cult" and tried to suppress -- denied tampering with the programming beamed across the country. The interference occurred on signals from the APSTAR 6 satellite on Sunday evening, and affected 25 channels -- 13 belonging to state-run CCTV and 12 provincial or city channels, spokesman Brian...

    MONTERREY, Mexico -- It was the reporters who noticed first. Unable to call their editors while covering the weddings of the rich and famous, they asked the priest why their cell phones never worked at Sacred Heart. His reply: Israeli counterintelligence. In four Monterrey churches, Israeli-made cell phone jammers the size of paperbacks have been tucked unobtrusively among paintings of the Madonna and statues of the saints. The jarring polychromatic din of ringing cell phones is increasingly being thwarted -- from religious sanctuaries to India's parliament to Tokyo theaters and commuter trains -- by devices originally developed to help security...

    French Official Approves Decision to Let Some Places Install Mobile Phone JammersPARIS (AP) -- Watch a movie or make a mobile phone call. Soon, in France, you might not be able to do both at once. The government's industry minister has approved a decision to let cinemas, concert halls and theaters install cell phone jammers -- on condition that emergency calls can still get through, officials said Monday. Jean Labbe, president of the National Federation of French Cinemas, said the measure was a response to "a long-standing request" from cinemas of all sizes. Cinemas have invested heavily to improve comfort,...
