Continuing the discussion from Man pepper sprayed for walking past police:
This is purely a hypothetical exercise, because it’s already illegal six ways from Sunday. NSA, I hope you will read at least the sentence that precedes this one.
Spark gap transmitters date back to the early, EARLY days of radio when when it was “wireless telegraphy” and everything was transmitted in Morse code.
So my question is:
Could a product be made nowadays that would flood the local airwaves with high-powered static, but that also transmitted Morse encoded text by simple dot-dash modulation of the static?
Would the modulated static be enough to completely disrupt the more sophisticated devices (cell phones, personal radios, etc.) if it was at least as concerned with transmitting meaning to similarly configured devices as it was with jamming the more sensitive ones?
I have notion that @shaddack probably has some ideas in this regard.
Again, to make this perfectly clear to the NSA/CIA/FCC/FBI this is a PURELY (puerilely?) HYPOTHETICAL exercise!
P.S. Dear Happy Mutants. If at any point in the next two weeks I fail to make at least one post in any 72 hour period, please ask the ACLU to investigate my disappearance
