FCC warns 20 US online retailers to stop selling signal-jamming devices

     The FCC has issued warnings to 20 US online retailers to stop selling illegal signal-jamming devices. These more than 200 uniquely-described models include mobile phone, GPS and Wi-Fi jammers. Enforcement Bureau Chief Michele Ellison said, "Our actions should send a strong message to retailers of signal jamming devices that we will not tolerate continued violations of federal law. Jamming devices pose significant risks to public safety and can have unintended and sometimes dangerous consequences for consumers and first responders."
     These signal jammers could hurt more than they were intended to "help". These could cause interference on the ham bands, especially HSMM. Thanks to the FCC for addressing and enforcing the laws for these jamming devices. Please read and stay vigilant with our spectrum.

PBX in a Flash for Intel Atom Platform

The Intel atom platform does not work well with this version of PBX in a flash. The problem is the CentOS doesn't currently support the Intel Atom motherboard very well. But all hope is not lost, they have a version just for the Intel Atom. I will be looking at this some more in the future. I am also looking at building a barebones computer for this also.
