Radio wave gun zaps drones out of the sky – and it's perfectly legal*

Megawatts? That would be enough to fry the drone's receiver. It doesn't have to be a very long pulse, though. You can build a device that you can carry that would put out that much power for a few nanoseconds.

The jammer just puts out more power than the perp's radio. Not hard considering he's hiding way off somewhere.
