as a retired phreaker, if you don’t know how to tap a landline from c. 1 mile away, you’re an idiot! (google green box)
lol, and how the rules have changed in the last 10 years. he’d be better off bugging her car.
Became obvious to me when a car ran over our green box a half mile away, and after it was fixed I began getting someone else’s calls. I could call out, but in reality it wasn’t my phone number.
As to the capitol or any other government building, I’m betting someone would have a difficult time finding a green box. I would think all the phone service would go through hardened, and tightly controlled locations, at least until it got to a trunk.
