Page 9 - Radar Scramblers Don't Work
When people ask why I don't sell radar scramblers, I always answer the same way: 'I've never found one that works!' - Radar Roy
First let us explain what the differences are between passive and active jamming devices.
Passive jammers are designed on the theory that when an officer shoots your car with either a radar or laser gun, the signal from this radar/laser gun is reflected back to the officers device, with an added FM chirp.
The problem with this theory, if you are further away then three feet from the police radar gun, the reflected signal is not strong enough to jam the gun.
Radar Roy has become so frustrated at the companies that manufacture these devices to defraud the public, he developed RadarJammer.com and offers ANYONE a $5000.00 reward that can show him one of these devices that actually work!
On RadarJammer.com, Roy has collected complaints from customers that have been submitted to the El Paso Better Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission, along with news stories from ABC News 20/20, Extra, American Journal and other media outlets that have performed numerous tests on these devices and also found that they do not work as advertised.
Roy has also been interviewed by several news organizations regarding these products, and these news stories are available on the left of your screen, to view online.
In contrast, active jammers send out their own radio and/or laser signal that is on the same frequency as the police radar/laser gun.
There are two types of active jammers, radar jammers and laser jammers.
Active Radar Jammers:
Although the device was effective at jamming during the testing, several clients have had follow-up conversations with Radar Roy complaining that the unit would fall out of frequency and that they could not obtain support.
Another problem with this active radar jammer is that it is a federal felony to own and/or sell one. The Federal Communications Commission could fine you upwards of $50,000 and you could be imprisoned for up to five years.
Active Laser Jammers:
There are several good active laser jammers that do work very well at jamming police lidar and there are no federal laws prohibiting their use.
However several states that include Nebraska, Minnesota, Utah, California, Oklahoma, Virginia, Colorado, Illinois and Washington DC have passed their own laws prohibiting their use.
