Are my chips like the ones you are concerned about. My guess is they are similar. I can't read my chips with my equipment from further that a few
Tell me about the evidence that chips can be tracked by satelites, pls. Thanks!
most likely, no. The type of RFID you are working with are called passive. Basically, the reader supplies the energy needed to transmit the data, and
the act of reading is what supplies power to the chip. Currently, I am not aware of an RFID reader that can read an active chip from more than 10-20
ft away. In fact, most are under 3ft. I work with many types of passive RFID. I actually develop software and hardware systems that make use of
RFID (but not for sinister reasons, I promise!)
I would assume that regardless of how far the chips can be read (active / passive) the technology is the same, therefore the use is the same. It's
like comparing a solar light with a regular electrical/battery powered light.
Essentially, an RFID chip is just a serial number - and eventually the equivalent of a hard drive (or perhaps more). It's the software, and use of
the info (tracking, etc.) that could be used for malicious reasons.
I hope to see this thread develop into an informative collaboration.
