The Act prohibits any person from willfully or maliciously interfering with the radio communications of any station licensed or authorized under the Act or operated by the U.S. government. 47 U.S.C. Section 333. The manufacture, importation, sale or offer for sale, including advertising, of devices designed to block or jam wireless transmissions is prohibited. 47 U.S.C. Section 302a(b). Parties in violation of these provisions may be subject to the penalties set out in 47 U.S.C. Sections 501-510. Fines for a first offense can range as high as $11,000 for each violation or imprisonment for up to one year, and the device used may also be seized and forfeited to the U.S. government.
Ok, I went and made a bunch of these, based on the gerbers and schematics posted in these threads. They're REV 2A of Wavebubble 2010. See below for photos.
I have NOT assembled mine yet, nor tested it. I can't guarantee it works (but it passed etest, and visually looks pretty good). I'm considering making some stencils as well, but haven't gotten around to it yet.
So, I bought one of these from you off eBay because ladyada's 1a is just impossible to find parts for. What I'm wondering, though: Why not print 2010 rev. B boards? They've been out for a long time, and they address a few (relatively) important design flaws. Also, I guess since you're putting one together, would you mind sharing a BOM for 2010 rev. A? I'm uncertain that they are the same, A & B.
I made these from the latest files posted at viewtopic.php?f=16&t=14782&start=135 - I was under the impression that these are "REV A" boards, but I could be mistaken. I've got them loaded in Eagle on this computer, so if you can give me something to check to see if it's "A" or "B" I'll gladly do so to confirm.
I don't check this forum as often as I should, but if anyone has any boards or is interested in some crowdsourcing, feel free to PM or email me. I'm not the right person to head such an effort, but I'll mos def throw down on it if anyone else feels like taking the initiative.
I was just thinking it would be neat to have one but I did not want to pay to get my own printed. Lucky I thought of checking to see if any one did a big batch and it looks like I checked in at the right time. Just ordered mine
