    Help, there's a person in our office who constantly listens to the radio way too loud. It's been brought up to our fearless leader but nothing has been done about it. So....I must take this into my own hands. Is there any way to disrupt the radios signal? That's without touching the radio itself? I want her to get pure snow on every channel.

    Help guys. :eek4:

    Take away their stapler. Then they'll burn the building down, along with the radio, and move to the bahamas. Problem solved.

    Hmmm i have a problem with my radio reseption when my computer monitor is on, but thats only when the antenna is really close to the screen, if you could get the antenna near a computer screen it might just do it.

    Buy a signal generator. Or an HF ham radio.

    yeah all you need is a sig gen and an antenna and tune it to whatever frequency the person is on and just turn up the power til you dont hear her radio.

    actually you could get an iron rod and put it over the antenna... dont know how well it would do, but iron acts as an electromagnetic shield...

    Get a small piece of metal or plastic that is the same size as a headphone jack, usually 3.5mm. Shove it completely in the headphone jack so that the main speaker amp is turned off. Most jacks use a small switch that is opened or closed when a headphone plug is inserted in the jack.
    You could also buy an FM transmitter for use in cars and tune it to the frequency that she listens to. Then place that fairly close to her radio and that should cause enough interference that she won't be able to listen to it. This method is defeated by her changing stations though.

    consumer FM transmitters will only opperate on commonly-unused stations.

    I think the best bet has already been mentioned, a signal generator that is hooked up to an antenna. Probably not worth the cost though.
