Write a comment Very interesting article, I will be featuring on my new blog shortly. I used to work in the wireless industry, so this entry was very interesting for me because I know some of the ins and outs of this topic. I remember a story from the Russian war in Chechnia in the 90's involving a Chechen commander who was specifically targeted and hit by a rocket out of nowhere as he was talking on his sat phone. The ability to determine locations of people through cell phone signals, especially satellite phones, is well established. Unfortunately, like Yon said, this has not been a secret for quite some time, which is why Bin Laden purportedly uses no-tech communication methods. But, the silver lining in this is that, having to rely on 18th century communication methods to avoid our detection has undoubtedly slowed down and complicated the effectiveness of their operations even if it means we can't find them for the time being.
