Agitated Man Uses Cell Phone Jammer to Block Chatter on Bus

Although it may appear to be a walkie talkie at first glance, that unassuming little box holds far more power than one might assume. Once activated, a mobile phone signal jammer can effectively block all cell phone signals in the surrounding area. However, it is crucial to note that utilizing such a device is not only a violation of federal law but also carries the risk of a substantial $16,000 fine and potential incarceration.

The presence of talkative cell phone users on the SEPTA 44 bus in Philadelphia did not deter Eric. According to NBC 10, Eric would activate a block signal jammer to block out the conversations that he found bothersome.


“A lot of people are extremely loud, no sense of just privacy or anything. When it becomes a bother, that’s when I screw on the antenna and flip the switch,” Eric told NBC 10.

Eric stated that he was unaware of the fact that blocking a cell phone signal was illegal, considering it to be a “gray area.” He believed that it was only considered illegal when it pertained to blocking television or radio signals.

In spite of this, he did not seem particularly sorry for his actions.

He proudly admitted to NBC 10 that he is taking on the responsibility of enforcing the law independently.

The use of jammers, like the one employed in this situation, is against the law due to their potential to disrupt cell phone communication during emergencies and interfere with vital signals like police radio and other two-way radios.

Eric announced his intention to dispose of the jammer he had purchased upon learning that it was illegal, with ABC News estimating its cost at $300.

Yet, the key issue is that Eric is not the sole individual partaking in this jamming practice.
