Call of Duty Logic

I only recently figured this out. Anyone who does engineering and who can contradict me, I'm all ears.

In Modern Warfare 3, as part of the
Delta Faroe mission you have to
destroy a radio jammer.
The jammer is specified to he "Full Spectrum"
You then use a remote contol
which functions using REDID WA? }
to detonate the charge used to destroy
the mast.
Problem, physics'?

Instead of going into a very detailed explanation, let me try to keep it brief: Short range is harder to jam than long range.
Jamming works by decreasing the signal-to-noise ratio (i.e., adding a lot of 'static'). In essence, think of it as multiplying the effect of distance on the quality of the signal. So, let's say the jamming effect reduces the effective range of a signal by 95%. That's a huge effect on long range communication. (Instead of a 20 mile radius, you only have a 1 mile radius of 'clear' signal.)
But for a short range device (say, 5000 feet?), it's still a clear signal up to about 50 feet away.
This is a very simplistic explanation, but I hope it makes sense.

Indeed, thanks for explaining this. Out of interest, how much of a range would you get while standing next to the jammer?

Without knowing the specifics, it's hard to guess. But, I'd say a range of about 30-50 meters wouldn't be unreasonable.

I know it's a video game, but there are plenty of video-game logic posts, they're funny. And in response to HobbsBear's theory about IR, you can detonate it from behind a solid object.

Who cares...
IT'S A ******* VIDEO GAME...
ffs
If you want realism go play "flashpoint" or whetever the **** it's called

I concede this battle to you sir, but only if you can prove me wrong. Cellphones, GPS and Bluetooth are all radio, and would be jammed. How would jam-resistant signals work?

Blue Tooth
Jam-Resistant Radio Signal - expensive as all **** , but exist.
Infrared Beam
******* Cell Phone Signal
GPS Enabled Devices

******* **** tons of ways to get past this **** .
