Submission + - Libya SIGINT jamming satellites, towers ( 1

h00manist writes: Libya's Gaddafi apparently loves radio hacking. Confirmed to be using signal jamming to disable Thuraya satellite phones. Also satellite TV network provider Arabsat, affecting vast areas in the Middle East, Gulf, Africa and Europe. Perhaps cellphone and internet transmissions also too, which work intermittently. Soldiers confiscate electronics, too. This has gone on for days, allowing killing carried out largely hidden from the world view, quite different from what happened in Egypt. The locations of the jamming signals is known to company executives, around capital Tripoli, but nobody can do anything. Only POTS available, and monitored. Technically, could this happen everywhere? Alternatives?
