How come nobody thought about fucking with Groom Lake security?
>go with walkie talkie with a good range right up to the sign
>start talking with friend on walkie talkie thats a long way away with crap like
- i'm near the fence
- i passed the fence
- i just passed the runway, almost got spotted
- i'm in, and setting up tracking, you should see everything on the security cameras within 30 minute, start transmitting in 20 seconds
- alright, i'll blend in and snap some photos, taking the elevator down now, the dummy clearance is working wonders, every door is opening
>keep the conversation up for 15 minutes before leaving abruptly just to fuck with security
>also reference the drone that's picking the other guy up and will keep hovering for 6 hours or some shit like that
Base would probably go in lockdown and security would go ballistic looking for nobody
>They hear your walkie-talkies
>They send in some surveillance aircraft, and inform the police and the SWAT team, along with the whole fucking military inside the base
>You get caught within seconds pranking them
>You get send to Guantanamo for being a suspected spy and terrorist
>You lose your anal virginity
win win, OP
There's nothing there. Area 51 is meme.
>lets hide our most secret shit at a place the whole world knows about
>no air defense
>no military presence
>just a few guys in a white pickup with a shotgun
>and a dozen cameras
Cuz it's a bad idea.
The moment you transmit with enough juice to reach their receiving stations, they'll be able to triangulate your exact position. They will promptly dispatch the party van to take you for ride. Then again, they may just send a drone to drop a hellfire on your face. Either outcome is less than desirable.
What am I saying, go for it OP.
I bet they'd spot you on surveillance drone before you even got to the fence, as soon as you opened up on radio they'd be like "I can see him stood by the fence he's full of shit"
Then I like to think they'd 'accidentally' cut in on your frequency with something like "we got him..... by the fence..... orbital lazer system..... nothing left to find.... engage target...."
I bet you'd piss your pants.
My friend and I did something like this at my uni campus and within 5 minutes security rolled up and told us to stop.
If campus security can lock down your location in 5 minutes you think Groom Lake can't in half a second?
kek, of course those hangars and airstrips you can see on google earth/maps are made by "just a few guys", and of course the US government would have gone out of its way to deny the existence of these "few guys in a white pickup with a shotgun" for a lot of years and then suddenly say these "few guys" are apparently a facility for testing experimental weaponry. That seems totally fucking logical doesn't it?
1. Get a cash for clunker car
2. Drive it up to the mail box during night time or dusk
3. Put dummy in car so it'll look like 3 people came
4. Leave dummy there looking like a walkie talkie that's hooked up to a cell phone using a pre-paid card on both ends
5. Roll Tape and start the conversation as OP mentioned
with enough planning this crap might be interesting
It's area 51 because groom lake was located in an area designated 51 on the old DOE maps. It was just one of many areas with numbers in a very large weapons testing range. The groom lake site was later chosen for testing secret aircraft because some u-2 pilots liked the place. My grandfather was an engineer for a company that produces flight instruments for military aircraft, and groom lake is where they tested their hardware.
