using his satellite phone to track him down.
You said it, I dont have too.... Satellite phones are diffrent then cellular or Analog and can easily be traced by GPS.
Defcon5...... Actually the local police here in NJ do not have the capabilities of tracking a cell phone. There was a recent "Post" and on the local
news here about a month ago about a little girl in Paterson, New Jersey who called into 911 about her mother being hurt, she hung up the phone and the
local authorities could not pin point where the call was coming from and that is fact.
I am not sure also what your friends father had in his car to intercept cell calls . I do know from the base of a tower site, you will find a keyboard
which will allow you to set each system , fleet, id and run random upgrades to add multiple channels. other than that, I would be much intrested too
know of what the device is called.
also please read your material thouroughly before posting a link...
Found in your link on how to eavesdrop on a cell phone:
4 Possible Interception Attacks
The interesting question about the GSM security model is whether a call can be eavesdropped, now that at least one of the algorithms it depends on has
been proven faulty.
Scientist around the world seem to be unanimous that the over-the-air interception and real time decoding of a call is still impossible regardless of
the reduced key space . But there seem to be other ways of attacking the system that are feasible and seem to be very real threats. There are also
many attacks that are realistic, yet do not abuse any of the faults in the security algorithms
