You could just locate existing sources of jamming sigals and notify the 
authorities without violating any laws. Setting up a jamming device 
yourself would be a different story. However, if one was deployed in the 
woods, it shouldn't affect anyone else if the effective jamming range 
was only 10 - 20 metres. If it had a much greater range, you might not 
be the only ones tracking it down. (Bring your earplugs!)
