    Default Cellphone signal jamming - how it works

    How cellphone signal jamming works

    Mobile phone signals are pretty resilient, but if someone wants to jam them it can be done

    “There appears to be no legitimate radio communications use for cellular jamming devices,” the gazette stated. “Icasa has therefore decided that use of jamming devices will not be authorised”
    Does this include government?

    ... apart from the guavament of course. They are apparently above the law.

    The president had over 900 counts of corruption and fraud against him, which were conveniently overturned.
    His crony Shabir Sheik got medical parole, after being convicted of fraud and corruption.
    His other buddy Jackie Selebi, who was also convicted or fraud, corruption and racketeering charges, was also given parole.

    Eve blamed the Serpent... and the serpent did not have a foot to stand on.

    1. Selebi was a friend of Mbeki, not Zuma.
    2. Selebi was charged when there was a political battle between Mbeki and Zuma camps.
    3. Selebi is now painted as a struggle hero (had always clean financial audits) and Zuma as a persistent fraudster.
    4. It seems this battle is not over...

    I know a CEO who turns it on during meetings so people dont fiddle with their phone every 2 min.

    If that ceo has to do that instead of asking his employees to kindly refrain from using their phones during the meeting then he either is a dick or his employees have no respect for him.

    South Africa’s telecommunications regulator, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa, has previously said that using jammers is illegal

    Actually, there are cases where it's legal and certain bodies that may use them. In South Africa. By law. ��
