Thread: Big Brother is listening

    I read something a number of years ago that they also had the ability to make your home phone "hot on the hook". In other words they could listen in thru it even if you were not on it. Not sure if it is true but I would be supprised at nothing any more.

    For the past couple of years we've been cell only but are going back to land line. I used be the telcom technician for a local university. Its been a while but I believe on the old fashioned ATT 500 set (the desk phone/weapon) depressing the cradle switch physically disconnects the hand set. The signal that activates the ringer is 50 volts AC and would do really ugly things to the speaker and microphone. I would say its definitely possible with a cordless since most of those can also be used as an intercom. We had already decided to go with all 500 sets, but this just further convinces me.

    There have been a few things obtained from FOIA that explain what they have done thus far. Not all cellphones have the capability, but a great deal do. The feds wanted to bug a few BG so they basically uploaded some of their own written software onto the perps cell phone. Then as the person walks around or does whatever, the cell phone microphone remains activated and the phone transmits the data like a normal phone call. Of course there is a bit of adjustments in audio, etc. This has been capable on Land lines for a great deal of time. However, it does not work on phones usually unless they are modified in house. With todays technology, the feds can listen through your cell phone while the power is off, they can track where you go, they can monitor your communications. In some telephone exchange and wireless communication facilities, whole floors are dedicated just to the government for this. Its a hazard of the techno world we live in. Just as it is when we e-mail and write on forums. They are on here and watching by the way. Get yourself a faraday cage cell phone pocket and protect yourself just as virus software or a firewall on your computer!!!
    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
