Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| The chance to get caught is even higher.
| Operating on the GSM bands automatically means the basestations receive
| what you send.
| This also means they can (and do) easily recognize if there's something
| At this point the operator might inform the regulator (BNA in germany)
| who has the equipment to track you down.
| And of course GSM is sensitive - high bitrates at less then -100 dBm
| with complex access methods.
To avoid this sad fate one can buy or rent rather expensive (GBP5K +
options probably to buy) "base station" emulators you can connect to by
physical cable with no antenna, eg
What you do in that closed system that you own end to end is entirely a
matter for you alone.
