This data deals with air broadcast radiofrequencies. One area that is
not public knowledge, or what I haven't seen much of to date, are
signals transmitted in the sinewave harmonic patterns through the power
lines. These are quite present, and they can be amplified by a
surveillance system through use of a few simple components to boost the
harmonic output of the surveilled facility.
