You’ve heard of PRISM? Now you can be a contributing member of PRASM™.
As an amateur radio operator, your skills are in demand and are being sought by Peoples’ Radio Amateur Surveillance & Monitoring - a new WorldGovernment agency dedicated to keeping you safe by providing further intrusion into your personal life.
Your fellow amateurs make contacts around the world on a daily basis. Until now, most of these contacts have been unrecorded and uncorrelated with each other. This is entirely unsatisfactory and is in direct opposition to the many (and mandatory) benefits of Orwellian Rule.
Think of it – ham radio is the last remaining method that ordinary citizens have of communicating with one another over great distances without leaving a traceable and verifiable electronic trail.
That being the case, amateur transceivers could be put to use by jihadists, militia members, left-wing wackos, preppers and – most sinister of all – normal people.
This can’t stand!
With their radio and computer expertise, volunteers among the amateur community worldwide are in demand to monitor, record and DF each and every transmission by other hams throughout the world.
“By hams; against hams” is the PRASM™ motto.
SDR technology allows the identification and recording of multiple QSO’s in progress simultaneously across broad sections of the RF spectrum.
Additional software can allow stations to be DF’ed as long as the station under scrutiny is received by three or more PRASM™ stations simultaneously. This is done mainly via time-delay differences among the receiving stations.
This data, as well as that from online electronic QSL services and online logbooks, will be maintained and correlated into a vast databank and used to determine operating patterns, sleep habits, socio-political persuasions and more.
A profile can then be developed for each and every amateur radio operator in the world. Behaviors can thus be detected, profiled and corrected by ThoughtPolice local to the perpetrator.
- Perhaps a DXer is working too many 4X stations. Is this simply an issue of propagation or is he pro-Israel? If the latter, it will need to be corrected.
- A station in Texas is known to work a station in Georgia each Monday evening. Bubba and Bucephelous are obviously talking about guns. This too will need to be corrected, especially since the states involved are “red”.
- Chatter on 20 meters picks up every year in mid-December. Are people wishing each other a Merry Christmas? This will most definitely need to be corrected. WorldGovernment will tolerate no competition to its omnipotence.
- Do stations in NYC operate for long periods of time between breaks during CQWW? If so, their stations will need to be inventoried for evidence of drinking containers larger than 16 oz.
- A Tokyo ham isn’t working many African stations. Is he racist or does he need a better antenna? Depending on the outcome of a lengthy investigation, Hiro will be provided with either a station upgrade or sensitivity training.
- Do any amateur stations have a callsign with a suffix of “NRA”, “GOP” or “EDL”? If so, the ThoughtPolice will need to know if this is a random assignment or if it was made by request. Vee have vays of making you schpeak.
- In some cases the particular equipment in use by an amateur can be determined. Did an amateur spend too much money on his equipment? If so, it is likely that some of his wealth will need to be redistributed. Owners of “top-end rigs” will require additional scrutiny.
As you can see, a lot can be derived from a station’s operating habits – but only if the operational information is made available.
Please consider joining PRASM™. And remember – if you’re not monitoring, you are being monitored.
Or, as the ThoughtPolice cheerfully say: “Nice station you have there – it’d be a shame if anything were to happen to it.”
Ham radio bloggers will also be under scrutiny. Any attempt at satire or ridicule of the policies mentioned above may result in termination of blog without prior notif
