I used an OTDR years ago (at least six) when I worked for a scientific instruments rental company and am very familiar with it.
I also worked for an Australian defence contracting aircraft company and they had a microwave "boundary fence".
At the time I was working on the Interscan Prototype
and so I was machining microwave
waveguides. Needless to say, we went "through the fence" whenever we wanted.
and they never had a clue (perhaps they did but didn't care).
If you are happy enough with carrying around a large reflector array, microwaves as a detector are just as compromisable as light.
Don't carry metal, keep low to the ground and move slowly.
(I wonder what ever happened to the Desert Rat out at Groom?)
