	The newer jammers seem to be passive, they only return the signal they get, so
they probably would not cause other detectors to go off unless there was a transmitter
in the area.

	I don't know if a cop could do anything even if you were transmitting.  I have
heard that there are 2 FCC inspectors in the north-east of the USA, a very large area
for 2 people to cover.  The FCC rules are Federal, therefore State and local cops can't
do anything about it, as they have no jurisdiction.

	I would try to make it a concealed intallation for the jammer, you don't need to
see it like you do a detector.  If the cop can't see it, how would he know you have it?
