Just don't get caught with a jammer. Good way to get hammer-jacked. New Laser and radar guns detect jammers, anyway."Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

Radar is completely different than laser and they work on different principles.
When you use a radar detector you would be omitting a signal. Radar detecting you using radar is an issue because they can just use pop or instant on when they detect you. There is no defense to pop or instant on besides understanding what your radar is telling you.
Jammers ONLY redirect a laser being shot at you. There is NO signal for a cop to read. So many cars are equipped with laser for safety that it would be almost impossible to differentiate.
I suggest all understand NHTSA and state laws regulating measuring your speed. That is the best countermeasure available besides not speeding."Like all rotten bastards, when they become old, they get lonely.

US Federal Law prohibits the use of radar jammers.
Source: FCC Public Notice DA 96-2040
Radar Jammers are transmitters tuned to interfere with ("jam") a radar signal. The intentional use of jammers is considered "malicious interference" and is strictly prohibited by the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, as well as by FCC Rules. Anyone using a jammer risks such penalties as losing an FCC license, paying a fine, or criminal prosecution.
Speaking of, don't ask me how I know, but military bases don't allow detectors. Whoops.
The Communications Act of 1934 states:
Sec. 333. Willful or malicious interference. No person shall willfully or maliciously interfere with or cause interference to any radio communications of any station licensed or authorized by or under this Act or operated by the United States Government.
(June 19, 1934, ch. 652, title III, Sec. 333, as added Pub. L. 101-396, Sec. 9, Sept. 28, 1990, 104 Stat. 850.)
Sec. 501. General penalty
Any person who willfully and knowingly does or causes or suffers to be done any act, matter, or thing, in this chapter prohibited or declared to be unlawful, or who willfully and knowingly omits or fails to do any act, matter, or thing in this chapter required to be done, or willfully and knowingly causes or suffers such omission or failure, shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished for such offense, for which no penalty (other than a forfeiture) is provided in this chapter, by a fine of not more than $10,000 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year, or both; except that any person, having been once convicted of an offense punishable under this section, who is subsequently convicted of violating any provision of this chapter punishable under this section, shall be punished by a fine of not more than $10,000 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years, or both.
(June 19, 1934, ch. 652, title V, Sec. 501, 48 Stat. 1100; Mar. 23, 1954, ch. 104, 68 Stat. 30.)
Sec. 510. Forfeiture of communications devices
(a) Violation with willful and knowing intent
Any electronic, electromagnetic, radio frequency, or similar device, or component thereof, used, sent, carried, manufactured, assembled, possessed, offered for sale, sold, or advertised with willful and knowing intent to violate section 301 or 302a of this title, or rules prescribed by the Commission under such sections, may be seized and forfeited to the United States.
While the FCC regulates transmitters, guess what the little inverted cone-shaped thing is behind the windshield/rear window of the patrol car?
Again, this only covers active radar jammers.
Handheld laser detectors have been able to (or were designed to, opinions vary on their accuracy) detect the use of a jammer. I have seen one read "Jammer." It was in error, or course, but...."Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

That is correct, however there is not a radar jammer on the market because of said law. The only "jammer" are laser shifters, these only work with laser signals and do nothing other than detect radar signals.
There is only one way that I have heard of being able to fool a radar gun, and it requires skills and a damn smart friend....2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Vapor SRT8

I think we are here to achieve something. It's one life.
Whatever you do, keep yourself and people around you happy.
Even if you can't help them, don't harm them. I think that is pretty much life. Keep going, don't stand.
You got nothing to lose. Keep going, it's life.

GrossmanSheepdog, that was still good info to see. Hopefully when some search they'll be able to see this thread and the countless others about this subject.
There's a guy around here with a Radar Jammer. I think he's nuts for that but he still is free and undetected. It's a very serious fine and can carry imprisonment. Moreover, I've never asked him what, make or etc. because of its seriousness. It's very obvious as to what it is (it looks very weird on the windshield) and it omits a Ka signal. It's unnerving driving with him because when your at speed and he gets close enough, Ka hits hard on the V1.
I am one of the few guys I know of who uses Laser Jammers. I've been told that when I get close enough to V1s they detect my Laser Jammers; however, today you get falsies constantly from other cars. Good part about a Laser Jammer is they do not give falsies. If that laser Jammer is going off you have to check yourself immediately. It's important to understand the laws governing laser detection and how they work. Just like knowing when a false radar alert and a real one.

No Worries. Glad to be of help."Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

glad this opened back up! jizzed in my pants at that band listing, thanks! have starting looking through that radar forum, it's excellent. considering the blinders though i'll give laser interceptor a look.
can i ask, what is your friend driving that he feels the need to go beyond the laser shifters and get a likely military-spec jamming device??01 Mustang SVT Cobra

In the end...
There is no substitute for a Blinder.
