Default Jammer-Detector Installed

I've been seeing a lot of cars just pulled over as I drove by. Got me to thinking that pretty soon, my time would come. I just purchased a RMR-C430 Radar and Laser detector and jammer. What do you think?

Looks good, but are jammers illegal in NC? Is it easy to remove, I work on a military base and jammers/detectors are both illegal on base.

The only state that I know near here that the jammer is illegal is Virginia, which also outlaws detectors. The unit itself looks just like a detector, so I don't know how they would know it is a jammer. It is completely passive, so they don't "see" a jam...just a zero reading. Nothing on the unit says what it is.

ZZCruzr, does your jammer work on both Radar and Laser? If so you should be aware of the following:

It's a Federal felony to jam or attempt to jam a police radar gun (Code of Federal Regulations, CFR 47, Sections 15:20, 333, 333.4). Radar is controlled by the Federal Communications Commission ( www.FCC.gov ), with fines up to $75,000.00 . Due to lax Federal enforcement however, several states - California, Utah, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Nebraska, North Carolina, Virginia, and Indiana - and Washington, D.C. have passed their own radar jamming prohibitions. (From http://www.stealthhog.com/news/american_iron.htm)

Laser is controlled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for eye safety. There are no Federal laws restricting the use of laser jammers. However, Minnesota, California, and Utah have enacted laws specifically banning sale, use, and ownership of a laser jammer.

Interesting article here about jammers:

http://www.radarbusters.com/support/jammers/Default.asp

This product is suppose to work:

http://www.laserveil.com/

http://www.radarbusters.com/products/coatings/veil.asp

What we have to look forward to:

Zonal radar will be introduced tracking multiple vehicles in all directions of the police unit simultaneously including identification of the “fastest” vehicle in a group of traffic. No more hiding in a group of 18 wheelers! Radar and laser guns will be able to capture images of speeding vehicles on digital tape and storage cards and, if ask, officers will gladly show your speed.

IR, do you work at Seymour Johnson (snicker) or with a bunch of semen? (heh, could not resist)


OK, someone Photochop an F-117 fuselage onto a PT and caption it "Radar Jammer for the 21st century".


I am looking for an under-the-dash unit that has the sensors installed in the body, like in the grille, and the display inconspicously installed inside, perhaps in the cubby hole near the cupholder. Has anyone seen such a configuration?

IRPT...I'm not a lawyer (thank God) but this is a blurb from their web site...
"Our jammers do not transmit radio frequencies. The radar portion is a receiver not a transmitter. *This is why our jammers are legal! They have an FM chirp, a mixer, and a waveguide antenna for all radar bands the FCC allows the Police to use ( 7GHz - 38GHz ). The lidar ( laser ) portion transmits a specially modulated field of light from the vehicle with infrared diodes that cover all three laser guns in use today. The radar and lidar portions of our jammers confuse the radar and laser guns which prevent a hard reading of your speed. This makes your vehicle electronically invisible to police radar and laser guns. The radar jamming circuit mixes a doppler FM chirp with the incoming police radar signal and reflects it back to the radar gun. The computer in the radar gun must receive eight identical, consecutive readings before it will display your speed. All the different speeds contained in the FM chirp confuse the computer in the radar gun so it does not display any speed. This effect duplicates the normal operation that the officer usually sees. Since it is normal to occasionally lose the target speed, the officer is not suspicious. Reasonable care should be used as flagrant violators could still be caught visually with an estimated speed."

The company is confident enough to say they'll pay any traffic fines the first year.

The thing is a really good detector...so I haven't actually "tested" the jamming part of the story yet!

None of the above, I work at Marine Corps Air Station New River.
