R2 is a new Bug Detecting Device which can be successfully used by engineers or counter-surveillance specialists as a reliable tool for tracing different digital transmissions such as GSM, Bluetooth, etc.
New methods of ‘listening and watching’ with the help of modern technologies have become widely spread in our times. For example, a tiny GSM transmitter is accessible at practically any internet spy-shop for only 100â€”200 USD and can listen to all your conversations in the office or at home. And perhaps, more importantly, the Bluetooth protocol has been specially designed to transmit voices or conversations with high quality at a distance of up to 100 m – it can easily be used for bugging.
The sensitivity of a common RF detector (bug detector) is spread along a wide frequency range, usually 3, or even 6-7 GHz. This means the common detector cannot detect such weak and non-continuous signals as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or Wi-Max. Even more powerful signals like GSM-1800 are also hard to detect because of their low sensitivity at higher frequency ranges.
The only way to reliably detect wireless protocols is to use pre-selector chips (saw filters) which attenuate all other signals except the desired ones. This is the method implemented in the R2 device which has 6 channels for different frequency ranges and can simultaneously detect 6 different kinds of transmissions at a distance much greater than any common RF detectors. Such qualities make R2 a very desirable and reliable device during counter-surveillance sweeps.
