1968: A Paranoid's Guide to Bugging

Sean sez, "Thought you guys would dig this pictorial guide to electronic bugging that I posted today. The article ran in the September 7, 1968 issue of the legendary Bay Area radical slick Ramparts. Quaint by comparison to the spy tech of today. Also of interest, I posted Yvonne D'Angers (shot by Baron Wolman) modeling some of the equipment on the cover a few days back. These and all scans on my site are from my personal collection...."

A Paranoid's Guide to Bugging - Ramparts, 1968 (Thanks, Sean!)



  1. I recently watched that film for the first time, and I thought it was really intriguing to see a time when people were designing their own microphones and antenna systems for bugging, and using those devices to advance their careers. I also thought it was amazing to see Gene Hackman a character so vulnerable. I’m glad someone mentioned the film.
