Unlicensed radio stations not only disrupt and interfere with important radio communications and general operational radio, some also generate illegally powerful radio waves that interfere with neighboring television and radio, or disable cellular phone base stations.

The following shows the number of unlicensed radio stations detected. Using the DEURAS System, we hope to detect and eliminate unlicensed radio stations.
