Isn't this like teaching a pig to sing?
You irritate the pig and waste time.
Unless you can interface with the scanner and alter the picture/scan in a
significant manner you have only alerted TSA that something about you is
interfering with obtaining a accurate scan and it is time for a cavity
search - unless that is your ultimate goal.

> I was researching some information for a buddy who had questions about

> my intertube travels I noticed that the signal used is a 1mm wavelength.
> Well my buddy got the info he was wanting and some of these tid bits I

> his buddy Bob who researched the 1mm signal that is put out by these
> scanners and found that the 1mm wavelength actually converts to 299.792458
> GHz which is within the spec for an amature radio operator.
> Well Bob began to ponder (out loud I might add) what would happen if a
> person developed a small device that would transmit random white noise on a
> range of say 295 --> 300 Ghz ?
> He said that the viewable devices or systems would be directly connected to
> the machine so the devices reading the images would not be affected but what
> about the general image being taken, could it be distorted by this device
> transmitting from somewhere in the area of this scanner?
> Could a device small enough even be built to transmit these freqs?
> Now I tried my best to explain to Bob that scanners at an airport are by no
> means a place to play games and test his ideas as you fall under some
> interesting laws and these people have the right to do a full body search
> for additional tiny devices in places tiny devices are never ment to go. He

> understanding of a test such as this and the laws involved, agreeing the end
> result is not worth the chance you would take...
> However it does raise the question...
> What would be the result of such an interference be..................
