TRD-800 Recorder Detector

TRD-800 Recorder Detector

The TRD-800 was a small body worn recorder and bug detector developed and built by Research Electronics Inc. (REI) in Cookeville (Tennissee, USA) in 1989. It can be worn inconspicuously and allows RF devices, such as bugs and surveillance radios, and body worn recorders to be detected, giving the operator a covert (vibrator) warnin

Scanlock-ECM

The Scanlock ECM was a countermeasures receiver (bugfinder), developed in 1990 by Audiotel in Corby (UK) as the successor to the Scanlock 2000. It uses the same novel harmonic scanning technique as its predecessors, but also offers a number of new facilities and operational modes. Like earlier Scanlock receivers, the ECM can quickly scan the entire frequency spectrum between 10MHz and 4GHz for radio bugs with Amplitude Modulation (AM), Frequency Modulation (FM) or Subcarrier Modulation (SM). In addition, the Scanlock ECM can detect Mains Carrier (MC) transmitters (power line bugs) and Current carrier bugs. Unlike its predecessors, the ECM can also be used as a full-coverage radio scanner, with accurate frequency read out. In addition, an LF mode is present to detect eavesdropping devices operating below 10MHz.

Scanlock Broom-ECM

Non-linear Junction Detector: The Broom is one of the first non-linear junction detectors (NLJD), introduced by Audiotel in Corby (UK) in 1990, shortly after they acquired Security Research Ltd from Cray defence Group in 1989. The Broom can detect radio bugs, even if they are not switched on, by searching for the P-N junctions that are present in all electronic semi-conductors, such as diodes and transistors. It was invented by WWII SOE veteran Charles Bovill who initially used it to find corrosion on airplanes.
