Subject: [Leica] Is there such a thing? Clearly off topic.

As a matter of fact, just read an article on that subject yesterday.  Seems
they cost about 2,000 right now and have a limited range, as they should.
They are also illegal in many countries.  The article revolved around some
churches in Mexico where they were tired of the forgetful and self important
folks.  I came to light when reporters kept noticing that their cells did
not work when trying to report stories - and of course, get calls.  The
units the churches were using came from Israel and had been developed for
security reasons.  Then interviewed another fellow that imports them from
Asia for resale around the world.
If you want more info I'll try to find the article today.

  Anybody on this auguste list knows if the following item exists and is
available at a reasonable cost.  A device that would scramble the signal
coming to a cell phone, as in too may cell phones buzzing in this classroom?

   Private answer most welcome.
