ABSTRACT
The article reports that the demonstration which aimed to highlight a CellAntenna technology that can jam cell signals was not conducted in Washingtong D.C. in January 2009. Based on a letter to then-Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Kevin Martin from the state's Department of Corrections director Devon Brown, inmates are said to be using contraband cell phones while in custody. Many members of the wireless community think that the jamming technology may interfere with communications conducted by users other than inmates.
