Domestic Spying USA

Anyone ...

Who does not conform.

To explain exactly how I found this location, I had found that my cell phone did not work when I went to my home residence off and on for a period of three weeks. This severely hampers your economic situation when you cannot send and receive calls for potential employment. My curiosity was raised due to many other anomalies that had transpired in my life, including the theft of all my news camera equipment and a residential un-authorized entry.

Who does not conform.

To explain exactly how I found this location, I had found that my cell phone did not work when I went to my home residence off and on for a period of three weeks. This severely hampers your economic situation when you cannot send and receive calls for potential employment. My curiosity was raised due to many other anomalies that had transpired in my life, including the theft of all my news camera equipment and a residential un-authorized entry.

I noticed a pattern of being able to call out on the cellphone if I traveled A short distance from my home. So, one day I decided to see exactly what the effected area entailed. I took a Thomas Guide with me to help plot out the coordinates of the area where phone service had been disabled. Calling a number I knew would not pick up was chosen for the experiment. I remembered the ideas of finding enemy radio transmissions from reading lots of WWII War books and movies, Hogan's Heroes, Etc. Using Triangulation Methods to pinpoint the Transmission location, I figured I could use my effected cellphone to do exactly the reverse of the process.

So, I drove around the neighborhood dialing away, and marking down the intersections of functionality. If anyone ever needs proof that this experiment actually took place as I recount it, I'm sure AT&T has billing records to substantiate the claim that the said calls were in fact made, and also depict a pattenrn of whether the call did or did not in fact connect.

After gathering plotting information for the greater area on the South side of the Freeway near wher my house was located, I took the map book home to see if there was any specific pattern developing? ...Or it would pan out to be just another futile exercise in self entertainment. I found that the marked intersection began to form a semi-circle, so with a string and a pencil/pen I used for a compass, found the project perimeter of the effected area. Then, after plotting what would have been the true center of the Circle, I drove to the exact location North of the local Freeway (Business Route 80) where quite to my shock and surprise was a Cell Tower, as noted in the photos. Cell Tower #SA056. The only anomaly I noticed about the Cell Tower itself, was a Military, Drab Olive Microwave Dish pointed slightly down and toward an Easterly Direction. Approximately 300-400 yards away in the described direction I could see the Air National Guard Base which is located near Longview Drive an Interstate I-80. After photographing the Cell Tower location, I went to see what I could find at the Military Installation. I further documented through photography all of the equipment in apparent operation that would accept or send communications to said Cell Tower location #SA056. After documenting, I return to my home.

I later called to complain again about my cellular service to AT&T. All which should be recorded in their business archives. I relayed my concerns about the apparent use of Military Hardware associated with the Site #SA056, and the service operator had me hang-on while he ran various tests from his location. He instructed me to type in various text. On a whim, knowing that I had been under physical surveillance and believed my cellular communications had also been compromised, I decided to test it out right then and there to see if the service operator could read my text without pushing the Send Button.

I text something similar to the following, "Man! ...You would not believe the Shit that got me Here!"

I know you can't see someone's jaw drop over the telephone, but the reactionary silence was deafening. He got the message, and I could tell from the dramatic change in the inflection of his voice that he had not only received the text, it made him nervous as hell, and I got the feeling that I am in some seriously deep shit.

Knowing I couldn't improve the channels of communication on my cell phone, I did the best I could to get credit for loss of service on my phone bill, and just worked calling for employment into an away from the house type of thing.

A month after I reported the suspicious Military Hardware, I returned to further document both the Cell Tower Site #SA056 and the Air National Guard Military Installation. This is when I discovered all of the extraneous Military Hardware had been removed from the Cell Tower #SA056, and most of the mobile satellite equipment on the Air National Guard Base had been place in what appeared to be a non-active status.

The other thing I noticed was that it was in fact an installation advertised as United States Air Force Facility/Air National Guard. Me believing full well that it was illegal for the Dept. of Defense to employ assets against it's own citizenry of the United States of America. I was wrong? ...apparently?

It wasn't until a year later when I downloaded a copy of Google Earth,(The Free Version), that I found out that this facility of the Air National Guard house the 162nd Combat Communications Wing. That little piece of information really kind of solidified it for me that U.S. Military Assets were indeed being employed against American Citizens with no apparent ties to terrorism or contact with foreign nations or nationals whether they be friendly or hostile.

I was a very prolific political cartoonist and humorist on a specific Media Website for several years prior, and was quite critical of the Bush Whitehouse. I had no other specific connection to politics at the time as far as I knew. The knowledge I have since relayed about the make-up of the Corporate Media is knowledge that had come to light after this time, and to the best of my knowledge is true and correct.

So, there you go.

We are in some deep shit, Because it's not one life that has been compromised. It's an entire Nation

With Love, Tracy Mapes
