The question is what defines communication. When talking about jamming cell phone that operate on licensed frequencies and is a regulated service, yes jamming would be illegal. When talking about a drone working in private airspace without permission I think not. When you own property you own airspace above too. A drone would be a illegal trespass. Trick would be only jamming its frequencies and services and not others.
That's a reasonable reply. One of the above comments about "Jamming a signal on a frequency that one is not licensed" is utter crap regarding this instance. First of all, there is no license requirement for flying a drone. It appears that the frequency band in use is set aside for many things to co-occupy. This is much like itinerant communications frequencies in the VHF band. However, jamming radio communication can be inferred or assigned to any radio communication link as probable cause for some sort of enforcement. There has been a bevy of misinformation bandied about on this subject by individuals who don't have a clue about the FCC and the regs. Sorry, nothing personal but it's true.
Some of you have answered with some very well reasoned comments, and for this I thank you.
I have come to the conclusion that I will use the best tool that I have in my arsenal, and that will be direct personal confrontation using reasonable discussion and complaint. I do not own firearms or any sort of weapons, so my only choice is my intellect and well practiced communication skills. I am good at this, and having been a performing artist for most of my life, I am pretty convincing in my craft. Use of force or physical contact is not an option unless it becomes an issue of self defense.
Then, the authorities become involved and quite frankly, is not a good idea except as a last resort.
I am drafting a letter to my city council representative that outlines not only my complaint, but outlines some criteria for a no fly zone. One of the reasons for this is, this is part of the wetlands preserve and a natural habitat for the Pacific Fly Zone of many species of birds. Another is quite simple: Tourists, and during the peak months, this place is inundated with thousands of them. There may exist a possible danger of someone getting injured by reckless use, or inexperience of piloting these craft.
Anything is possible. Until a reasonable solution has been enacted, I am not going to pursue the idea of Jamming.
Using discussion and debate has once again proven to a useful resource in examining this subject.
Thank you once again.
