29/05/2001 The European Union has issued guidelines on how to spot Echelon spy stations. Here's ZDNet UK's own handy-dandy guide to finding one in your home town
  1. Look for large aerials, especially dishes not pointing towards the Sky satellite. Call a friend on your mobile while watching: if the antenna swivels towards you, so much the better.
  2. Trenchcoat specialist outfitters nearby
  3. Local taxi drivers know where you want to go before you tell them
  4. Graffiti in local pub toilets in five figure groups. "EYOWE RJUAA WAVUF FUEKA -- True!"
  5. Internet café offers T3 bandwidth to every seat, but only runs Windows XP/NSA
  6. If you ask for PGP, you get a nice cup of tea and a hard stare
