how do you defeat a radio jammer though, this is used against most enemies now a days
if it ever does come down to a SHTF or TEOTWAWKI situation I think I would monitor and listen before giving away my position and possibly scarificing my supplies & safety
Defeat a jammer? The FCC law prevent you from out-powering any decent jammer, so you figure out where it's coming from and move away from it.
This brings up a good question: any radio gurus wanna tell me what the legality is of building a jammer designed to attack unencrypted civilian bands? Mostly the motorola handy-talkies and the hand-held ham radios.
Building it? Legal. Turning it on to test it... illegal = felony.
The best, and only legal methods, of defeating jamming is by changing bands (they can't jam everything) and by using directional antenna and line of sight systems like light emitters, lasers, x-rays, etc.
Appreciate the clarification. I have no intention of bothering with it, but I've become familiar with some man-pack broad spectrum jammers (explained to me as "stopping the ripples in the pond by cannonballing a series of fat men into the deep end) and I was curious howlikely it is that something like that might be rigged up and deployed in a chaps-PAW by roving bands of raiders.
