In fact, "it is also prohibited to manufacture, import, sell or sell advertisements, including advertisements, aimed at blocking or blocking wireless transmission devices."
Interference is considered theft of property because a private company has purchased the rights to the radio spectrum, and interfering with the spectrum is similar to theft of property purchased by the company. It is also a safety hazard, as interference can block all calls in the area, not just annoying calls.
