    What I don't like is often the transmitters are placed in areas on the clothing (and other items) that if you attempt to remove it, you will ruin it! Such as embedded deep in the sole of shoes. The only way to remove it is tear the sole off your shoes.

    Of course some people have talked about using a microwave oven to zap the transmitters. Just a short time in the microwave is said to disable the transmitters. But some items, like electronics, should NEVER be placed in a microwave oven. But I'm not sure if the microwave trick really works to disable the transmitters. So be very careful with these ideas!!

    I wonder if the item (radio, cd player, dvd, watch, computer ect...) was battery powered, or used another power source, could the transmitter be then powered on, which would increase its range dramatically. I haven't heard too much about this technique, but I'll bet it's being used also.

    The common tracking transmitters often placed in clothing are not powered, but simply reflect a radio signal back to a transmitter that sends a signal out, (like the one planted in the US Embassy in the old Soviet Union. It was there for years but never found till one day the US seal was knocked off the wall by accident. Of course this was a listening device not a tracking device) and therefore require no power. Also these transmitters can be washed many times and still function. So the only way to ensure your privacy is to zap them or remove them completely.

    I buy all of my Spywear at Old Navy. Seeing that I have the ability to cloud men's minds they don't even know that I was there. I am smart enough to know that no man can cloud a womans mind. Just ask any guy thats married.

    Dream on, big ed

    Um; Mr Buck,

    Think about it. You should have gathered from my posts that all of my wardrobe consists of coffee colored ensembles except for what I am wearing now, of course. Oops. Dang!

    Play on, big ed

    I am not sure where to start chopping on this thread so instead I'd like to ask that we stick to discussing the thread topic and leave some of the good natured Ten Forward posts for a more appropriate thread.

    Thanks,
    Bubba
