Maybe I'm missing something, rainmaker. You say that in the cases of the transmitters there are yagi's installed at the stations. If these stations were under surveillance wouldn't it be counter-productive to install a yagi? I mean wouldn't the people there notice an antenna sprouting on their gas station? It's one thing to skulk in at 3am and plant a hidden mic but a yagi? I'm also a ham and located in MA (FN42hb). What freq's? Feel free to U2U me with whatever details you can share. I'd like to monitor some stations down this way.

Wow you are right in my back yard, hello there!

I know when to keep my mouth shut and will post anecdotal evidence here, but won't get into detail about the frequences. Every word I type is carefully considered and I wouldn't willingly compromise anyone's security. Besides, the frequencies these have been found on are not exclusive to the government. Trust me, if I thought this would get us in trouble or compromise someone's safety, I never would have mentioned it.

One thing I will say is that the TXers appear to be widebanded and have a "dirty" signal, that's how we found them in the first place. Seek and ye shall find.

Anyone who drives around with the right receiver will find these. Any Joe Public who goes into Radio Shack can buy a receiver and sit there and listen to his/her heart's content. Again I stress there is no "secret" implicit here.

There is one station in question where there is a yagi but no lottery machine, remote burglar alarm, or other reason we can find why the antenna should be there. You are correct, I don't know why I didn't think of such an obvious fact, the owners would certainly notice the antenna! Unless it has been there all along, perhaps from a previous lottery machine installation, and has only recently come back into use. That particular station has changed hands every few years or so lately.

If only it were easier to lurk in the areas of these stations and try to DF to see if the emissions are in a beam-style pattern, we'd learn a lot. Alas, one of the other stations where the pattern seems to be directional has no visible antennae on it. Other than those two, I don't think anyone's hung out in the areas of the other stations long enough to figure out much.

The one odd thing that we aren't sure of is how, if these are covert "bugs" installed without the owner's knowledge, they are able to be powered 24/7. I am saying this because at least 2/3 of these stations myself and others have driven by at night after closing and still heard the devices turned on. Let's say this is a surveillance operation and the devices are battery-powered. By now certainly a witness would probably have seen someone change the batteries in the device...unless, of course, a gasoline delivery tanker driver is somehow in on it and doing these things during late-night deliveries (common at most of these stations). Or perhaps the corporate level of the tanker company is in on it, and then tells the drivers to change the batteries in "a new kind of metering device", which the driver dutifully does, never knowing they are changing batteries on a monitoring device.

There was a multi vehicle crash that seems to have turned up something interesting. This happens as it seems raids are occuring across the country.



State police investigators along with the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force were looking into why a check written for a large sum of money, along with a sizeable amount of cash and multiple IDs, were found in a 1999 Kia Sportage involved in the accident, District Chicago Master Sgt. S. Nowak said.


Is everyone bugging out? Seems that these guys were in the wrong place at the wrong time, but fake ID's and lots of cash is suspicious.

lots of fake IDs out here ..more than are most people aware. It does however raise warning flags ...when lots of cash is involved..no doubt. Like a red cape before a raging bull.

Sounds like a hornets nest may be in the brew. I read that site by Laura Mansfield. I found it very intresting. I have also known for years that most of the mosques in America are heavily under the influence of Wahabi Imans...sent here especially for those purposes. This is not new information just not spread around much to most of the American public. Someone here does not want panic..for good and valid reasons.
Why would the bulk of Americans want to know this kind of thinking when they can have despirate housewives or NFL, NASCAR etc ..instead??

Lots of this kind of survelance going on around here..more than the public needs to know.

By the way Rainmaker and JTMA508..I am located in FM 17ta..Chesapeake Bay, Virgnia. My ears perked up when I spotted the term ...Yagi.
Operating mostlly out of my truck now days..though I will put up my base station again soon. FT 100d and FT 890 on the base. I miss using my keyer. Hard to do so out of the truck.

Thanks guys.

Nothing from here...
I reported the incident with the nonblanked credit card numbers at the two Muslim owned Gas stations, to the local branch of FBI.
They wouldn't comment if there was an investigation or not.

I noticed their interest got hotter when I mentioned that the owner decided to sell on such short notice on the same day that the raid in other states was reported.

I have always wondered how much damage a network of these "agenda owned" gas stations could do to the country... especially if the owners were open to being martyrs... (then I took my tinfoil hat off, and realized that Muslims that have money/future dont usually martyr themselves...)

My concern is more of the crime to support financing than of direct attack of terrorists.

Thank you for this info, I have been concerned that these said gas stations
may turn into a easy target for jihad.The ramifacations of so many stations out here acrossed our country could be devastating on our infrastruture. And our food supply, this is of national concern for the well being of our citizens. THANKS AGAIN!!!!!!!!

Three-year-old thread, I know, but...

Now that it seems the cat is out of the bag so to speak...the establishment pictured in the news article that follows is the place I was driving by when my companion informed me about some of these surveillance projects going on. This is the place he knew the most about, and that was a few years ago...I can imagine the intel that has been gathered since.

telegram.com...

I actually think I mentioned this on another thread somewhere as well, being a bit more specific, as this thread discussed more about my discoveries with the service stations. But the comments made to me about the place in the news article are what got me thinking to ask others, and led to the service station discussions.
