Yesterday we published an article with the photos of a militant from the ‘Vostok’ battalion where R-330Zh ‘Zhytel’ [Resident] automated jamming station can be seen. The exact location of this station was not known at that time. But by the end of yesterday some kind people had helped us to identify the place of the photo session.
The found Russian ‘Zhytel’ jamming station is located in Makiivka, Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine (map).
Let us remind you that this station is designed for the following purposes:
– disclosing, direction finding, radio suppression of the mobile satellite communication systems ‘Inmarsat’ and ‘Iridium’
– disclosing, direction finding, radio suppression of the mobile cell system base stations (GSM 1900)
– radio suppression of the NAVSTAR (GPS) navigation equipment
This equipment can work in both autonomous and paired modes (as master and as slave unit under the control of R-330KMK complex). Any of the mentioned types of signals are completely jammed in radius of 20-30 km.
30 km radius is shown on the map.
Thank you very much – @5urpher
