The only reason no one ever "found a way" is that it's expensive and too risky - it is possible though. Forget the idea of any kind of streaming, no
matter what frequency, network etc. It's detectable, and it won't even has to be "shot down" - there are much more silent ways of disabling anything
Electrical activity is detectable too, as is heat, which makes "slow approaches" basically impossible. It doesn;t matter if its night or day, it's
detectable and it will be shut off.
Any military installation consists of different security zones, and security monitoring get's more advanced as much further you get. Don't think that
the sensors that were found at the outskirts are they're only ones (in terms of technology).
If we assume that this is really the most heavily guarded base (which I doubt), just imagine what kind of security monitoring happens let's say 5
miles from the installation. People flying diy-drones with mounted cameras on it and expecting even to get close enough? No way.
Ground approach - a better option but still difficult. Someone mentioned shielding an electronic device - possible, but if you do this you still have
to resolve the problem with the coordinates and waypoints. Whatever your device is, it has to "know" where to go and what to do. Impossible without
any (gps, cmda, vhf etc.) guidance. Yet you can shield a camera, making it undetectable - but it's complicated and expensive.
I spend a lot of time, years, thinking of a hypothetical way how someone could get exclusive footage from that area. I really don't wanna share that
kind of information on a public forum, but there are a lot of hypothetical ways, if you do a different approach (yet by risking getting jailed for
espionage & treason).
Let's say you want to hide something - what do you think when choosing the best location? You think "where might X search for". Translated into that
topic, "what would crazy people do to get footage from the inside?" - Then you prepare, for every scenario, step by step. The're whole books on this
topic, and I am sure whoever is in charge did their job.
Forget classic approaches, think unconventionally. Think logistics - what comes in, what comes out. Think people, understand psychology - use for
example curiosity, confidence, hierarchy. Think of scenarios that look so suspicious, that they don't look even suspicious because nobody expects
something like that. The most important part of espionage is psychology, human behavior.
