surveillance devices. More often than not, counter surveillance will
employ a set of actions (countermeasures) that, when followed, reduce the

Electronic countermeasures - Most bugs emit
some form of electromagnetic radiation, usually radio waves. The standard
counter-measure for bugs is therefore to "sweep" for them with a receiver,
looking for the radio emissions.
Sweeping is not foolproof.
Advanced bugs can be remotely operated to switch on and off, and some even
rapidly switch frequencies according to a predetermined pattern in order
to make location with sweepers more difficult. A bug that has run out of
power may not show up during a sweep, which means that the sweeper will
not be alerted to the surveillance.abouts for any number of purposes. A skiptracer is someone who performs this task, which may be the person's
