|Home > Circuits > Telephone > Simple Phone Tap|
This circuit is extremely simple, therefore there is less chance of any problems. It can be placed anywhere on the phone line and it will record any conversation on any phone on that line.
Please note: I have received several emails saying that this circuit will not work and that it may hold your line off hook and to me it looks like it will (it would put quite a load on the phone line). For some, it has worked fine. Build at your own risk.

|First of all it is illegal to tap,listen or record someones phone conversation. if you are going to do it anyway go to another site and find out how because the editor is a jerk on this page. All you women really need to leave those men you are with because it only gets worst.|
|I want to find just ONE clue that my boyfriend is cheating, but I dont want to pay LOTS Please can someone help?
(Editor's notes: Ask him? Maybe you're the one cheating. After all, statistics say that 50% of men cheat, while 60% of women cheat.)
|Could the relay be used open/close the line going directly to the audio jack thereby muting/opening the audio line to the recording device? My recorder has no remote input, but does record when sound is heard.|
|My boyfriend is very possesive and i noticed in his history that he is inquiring about you product. Please tell me what he will be doing to get into my personal cell phone and what i can do to prosecute him. This is a total invasion of privacy. TELL ME, how is he doing this and how do i stop it... Has he put a chip in his cell phone or mine? Is he tapping my home phone as well. This is unbelievable and i want to know how to put a stop to his snooping. Not all women are cheaters, but most men are paranoid cuz they're in fact the cheaters. Please tell me where to find this chip in his phone so i can stop this before it gets bad.
(Editor's notes: Dump him. Problem solved.)
|Before 1986, the cordless phones used two frequencies, 49.860 MHz and 1.6 MHz, just above the AM broadcast band. The handset transmitted on 49.86, and the base unit transmitted on 1.6 MHz. The walkie talkies then were also on 49.86 MHz, so you could hear the telephone handsets in the neighborhood with a walkie talkie. In 1986, the new federal law prohibited monitoring this, and the manufacturers stopped using those frequencies. The frequencies cordless telephone were moved to much higher bands. The walkie talkies were also moved, to the family radio service, I believe. In any case, the 49.86 MHz band was no longer used. Now, instead of your children monitoring you, you're probably being monitored by Big Brother. :-(|
|Back when I was a little kid (5 or 6) I recall messing with a walkie talkie once when I was bored. I started TRYING to spell my name in morse code. The next thing I knew I could through the WT my mother, who was upstairs, talking on the phone to a friend. It was only 1-way, I tried talking to her through it. Then I ran upstairs and told her exactly what she said and had her talk into the phone and hear the WT.
What was this code? Do any of you know what thats all about?
It was just a kid's toy walkie talkie...
(Editor's notes: Many cordless phones and walkie talkies share the same frequency range. They interfered with each other.)

|I know my cats are crapping outside the litter box, and I need to implant this chip to read their minds and log the info on my computer via zigbee, so I can put a stop to this mess. Are there any good surgical sites that help with this procedure, I'm not sure if I should tap into the hippocampus or the cerebral cortex. Thanks|
|I have a phone tap that is just wires that is to be hooked up into the phone box out side, and I can listen to phone convesation in my home through the radio in my car sitting in my drive way.

|to a if your ex is tapping your phone, he either has a key to get into your house where the recorder is connected to a phone outlet, or he gets into your attic through an outside access(?) where the recorder is plugged into a phone line. start tracing your outlets and wires until you find where the recorder is.|
|It is really dangerous to use this circuit as is with no line isolating transformer, MOV and or clamping diodes! When a phone rings it can deliver voltages over 100v in some areas!!! The polarity of the lines are never guaranteed, and can switch, and destroy your devices! Please look at http://www.rane.com/note150.html for a much safer basic circuit. The relay can be added AFTER the dangerous voltages have been isolated.|
|we are not understanding these things.......so plz put it in ordinary english....................................|
|I do believe that aquiring the same sim card would work. If I could program a pre-paid with the same number maybe? but I could not do that threw the phone company as they would just be like...da fuck? so I guess the best way would be to get a scanner, sit next to her house or whever he/she may be and find the right channel.... but... then I would be seen and all that... I know you are going to say that you can't tap a cell phone, but I will found out a way and when I do I will post it here.|
|you can buy a small digital recorder some record up to 8 hours. leave it in the house or stick it behind the seat cover in the vehichle. Boy have I heard phone conversations. They work just fine and you can get them anywhere.|

|Hi! I just want to ask about the circuit. I understand the other line should be connected to the microphone of the tape recorder. How about the other line (the relay) is it connected in series to the power supply of the recorder, so that it will act as a power switch? thanks & best regards. Jun|

|With a browser and internet on my phone is my shit gonna be easy for some hacker to tap into?|
|Court ordered wiretaps on cell phones are made at the wireless providers switch site. There is no encryption and only a digital to analog converter plus switch controlling software is needed to send a tapped phone number to the agency. The air interface is extremely difficult to tap unless the cellphone is using an obsolete and now very rare analog phone. All carriers now use a version of TDMA, GSM, or CDMA with frequency assignments and cell site changing constantly, hence making it practically impossible to illegally listen to cellphone conversations. Now, there may be a possibility of having a device which would be a clone of the cellphone and its ID which could listen and respond to the same commands which the target phone gets and hence follow the changes. This would require being in close proximity to the target as it moves. Some test equipment was capable of doing that in the past, but the technolgy has changed dramatically in the last few years. Cheating spouses could be more easily caught with a PI.|

|Hello, I have had a suspicion that someone has been tapping my line. Proving it is the harder part. This past Tuesday around 7pm, I received a phone call and when I picked it up, I heard someone dialing a line and then there was this awkward silence. Other than this, I can hear a continuous beep, like the kind you hear when you are in an emergency room. On Father's Day this beep this sound was so loud that I could not hear my Father Speaking... I have also heard echoes, giggling and have had about 10 crank calls. At this point what I want to do is to prove that they did this. REgarding the call I received where I heard the dialing. I believe I can get started if I can prove who called me. How can I prove that this was part of a tap? What evidence can you gather from the information I have presented? This is infringing on my privacy rights and the privace rights of my family. Your response is truly appreciated. Kind Regards, Adrienne Simmonds|
