Legality (is there such word?) on radar jammer rests on Officer Bob's 
interpretation. Afterall, the intent of radar jammer is to jam "law 
enforcement." Now, there are only very FEW states that has made radar 
jammer illegal -- but technically, they are legal in most states by the 
strict word of law (interpretation WOULD be different).

Jammer, in the eyes of FCC, is perfectly legal until you reach certain 
wattage -- in which you'll need to apply license. BUT (that's a big BUT), 
FCC will probably deny your license application because FCC believes 
"such device is not in interest of consumers." Now, did anyone get that? 
How do they know it's not in the interest of consumers?

Of course, I might be wrong -- but this is what I heard on FCC's position 
on radar jammers.
