Question: Can You Setup Your Own Cell Phone Network to Prevent the Government from Tracking You?


I thought you might be able to make an interesting youtube episode about a theoretical networking tool depicted in the TV show “Person of Interest”.

What’s depicted is a personal, proprietary, untraceable cell phone network that is off the grid. This is done by setting up the network using nodes. The nodes (and this is the clever part), are old, out of use TV antennas on the tops of city buildings.

Because the cell phones connected to it are not part of the “normal” cell phone network, they cannot be traced.

I don’t know much at all about this sort of thing, but I thought you might find it interesting. Do you think something like this is possible?
