can the FCC really triangulate you position
Yes they can!.............Will they?...........probably not, unless your messing with air traffic control....or have allot of complaints from your neighbors for wrecking their TV sets...
Anyone with a directional antenna and a receiver can
Ham's call it a fox hunt. It can be fun.
Used to go on regular fox hunts around the San Jose area with the CB channel 4 crowd. But that was the 80's.
Yes, they also use other spookier government agencies if the need arises.
I've heard that, like NSA listening in and getting involved.
I wouldn't be surprised if they are gathering information from all bands and modes. If they can " record" everything that happens on the internet then this wouldn't be too hard for them to do. And for the cdma digital cell phones, they probably have that covered too. Lol
Yes it is true. The gov't does not have ten thousand people listening in. Anything that is radiated in to the air has massive computer banks listening for key words to alert on. Words that relate terrorism are key to the algorithm for capture and tracing the origin of those communications. Any cell phone call is listened to and they can track you using GPS inside your phone. Get out your tin foil hats friends.
It's easy to triangulate someone's position using one of these. I had one 30 years ago.
Snoop loops are nice, but not allowed on fox hunts. They're supposed to be a challenge.
Also, it's funny to see a dozen cars driving in circles in a parking lot trying to figure out which direction to go.
I did one Fox Hunt in Culver City California back in 1988 and it took these guys about half a day to find me since I was on the top floor of a parking structure in a small medical building and nobody thought to look inside the parking structure.
I like the guys that use a couple hundred watts into a single long-boom yagi down in a canyon. Typically they set up on one side and aim the yagi at the opposite side which yields all sorts of reflections down the canyon's length causing untold grief in trying to get a meaningful bearing.
