It's about time the fbi talks some mentally unstable guy into some terrorist plot, supplies him with burner phones and uses it as an excuse to require user registration.
Then mine goes into a small copper bag.
Yeah, the landscape is getting crazier by the day. It's not long now til I reach the point where I can identify who is calling across my network regardless of what phone they're calling from. That tech will obviously be acquired/independently developed by larger organizations and then things will get really interesting.
Dunno how I ended up here, I fucking hate phones.
Back in WW II we had the ability to ID a transmitter to the correct ship or Aircraft tail number. Today in the Ham radio world we have the ability to tell you what mfg of radio you are transmitting on, via a scope an pan adapter, even to the point what kind of computer an sound card you are using, to send your SSTV image. The nice thing is electronics work both ways, and are real easy to dick up even if hardened. Sometimes the more hardening installed the easier to get in an own or destroy it.
Once the NSA gets a/some finished quatum computer(s), security and privacy won't really be a thing anymore IMO. And it most certainly looks to be on the way. Passwords/logins/etc that'd take 50 years to brute force conventionally will be a hour or twos work at best once that tech gets here. They probably won't even reveal they have it lol
By a CB and keep it in an ammo can with batteries, when the emp strike hits it will be useful a week or so later.
Can a cheap hm. System fit in a 20 mm can?
Always nay Sayers, nothing new really. But if anyone needs/requires a demo I'll be shooting HardRock this Sat. The truck will be there in full operation as well, ask around it's been in operation there before. Won't be hard to spot by the turtle pond bristling with antennas. I'll operate in any mode you want, an log it all on the computer. In fact if you want to bring a video camera you can record it all. Many HardRock shooters are members here, if you can't get there just ask around. Now the balls in your court, nay sayer.
On a related note, does anyone use Duckduckgo?
I heard that it is a pretty good search engine.
Hey old man, you got any junk radios sitting on a dusty shelf somewhere you would part with for pennies on the dollar?
