who out there knows about taped phones or eavesdropped communications? what clues are given off by the phone conversation being listened to (if any)? i had a conversation late last night with a friend who works at the UN in NYC. i was on a landline, he on cell. halfway through the conversation i noticed clicks and just a lot of weird sounds that i have NEVER heard when speaking on this phone. we were talking general conspiracy stuff, as he is slowly waking up and asking me many questions. he is mid-level Secretariat and doesn't have any clearance or access to 'special' info.

am i just being paranoid, or is there something to this?


p.s.-a great sorcerer once said: "paranoid wizards live longer......"

The sounds you heard could be attributable to digital noise, bad packet formation, or other technical issues with today's technology. On the other hand, they could have been the sound of your conversation being digitally rerouted - for monitoring purposes. There's no telling really.

But if you are communicating with a foreign national in this country, the odds are they are monitored, at least occasionally.

I get those 'sounds' as well even calling locally or Long distance. It' been happening on every phone I use whether at my house or not. As Bush said, 'we been doing this for YEARS."

I use the simple side of caution..'take the mindset that you've been living in a Orwellian society for the last 10 yrs and EVERY word on the internet/phone/cell/PM/myspace/PC is, has been & will be monitored, analyzed, recorded & then stored for further use.

Yep, you got it. We're there already...

Click Click, click click. Yes you and he are being tapped. You cannot do anything to prevent it, so just ignore it.

I'm normally quite sceptical about Big Brother having worked in government departments and witnessing the absolute ineptitude of most government workers. But I do have my own story to tell about phone tapping.

I used to be a switchboard operator in the good old analogue days of the 80s where you literally had to flick switches. I got very familiar with the subtle differences in sounds and tones which would indicate someone had tapped into your line on purpose or by mistake.

Being Irish we made a lot of telephone calls from the UK to our family in Ireland. I was also a member of a number of left wing and animal rights organisations so it was no surprise when I would recognise the very distinctive but subtle sound of someone listening in to my telephone conversations. I used to say hello to them and advise them that they'd missed the most interesting gossip but if they stuck around long enough I might screw up and come out with something important. *Click* and off they'd go.

People thought I was paranoid and refused to believe me. Lo and behold in the 90s the UK government admitted that they'd listened into and recorded every single telephone call made to and from Ireland from the early 70s onwards. If they had the resources to do that in the bad old days of manual switchboards, imagine what they can do now. It's an easy matter for those that know to switch on your mobile remotely and listen in to your private conversations without you having any idea. That is not paranoia, that is fact.

And while I'm at it, let's not forget Echelon.
