Motorist Faces $48,000 In Fines For Mounting Cellular Signal Jammer In Carturbosaab (526476) writes "A Florida man who installed a cellular telephone jammer in the back seat of his Toyota Highlander is facing $48,000 in fines levied by the FCC. The case first came to light when T-Mobile USA’s local carrier, a company called Mobile PCS, noticed problems with their towers over a 12 mile stretch of Interstate 4 between Seffner and Tampa. After noting that the interference seemed to coincide with the morning and evening commutes, Mobile PCS contacted the FCC who used direction finding equipment to identify the suspect’s blue Toyota Highlander. When Sheriff’s deputies approached the car, they noted that their own radios ceased to work and, after a search of the vehicle, found the jamming device hidden beneath a seat cover in the back seat."
