22 tips to Avoid Surveilance Drones

This is a list of 22 tips on how to avoid a surveillance drone that has been widely distributed by al-Qaeda.  Now I am no expert on drones and how they function, so I can’t comment on the reliability of all the information.  However, I feel that publishing this list may start some discussion that can provide us all with beneficial information.

You can look at the list from two different ways, one if you utilize these tactics you may be able to avoid surveillance drones, two if you are lost and want to be found, do the opposite of what the list suggests.

The English used in the list is not the best and I don’t understand everything they suggest, I am hoping someone can help explain a few of the tips.


1. It is possible to know the intention and the mission of the drone by using the Russian made “sky grabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and the frequencies. The device is available in the market for $2,595 and the one who operates it should be a computer know-how.

2. Using devices that broadcast frequencies or pack of frequencies to disconnect the contacts and confuse the frequencies used to control the drone.  The Mujahedeen have had successful experiments using the Russian-made “Racal”.

3. Spreading the reflective pieces of glass on a car or on the roof of the building.

4. Placing a group of skilled snipers to hunt the drone, especially the reconnaissance ones because they fly low, about six kilometers or less.

5. Jamming of and confusing of electronic communication using the ordinary water-lifting dynamo fitted with a 30-meter copper pole.

6. Jamming of and confusing of electronic communication using old equipment and keeping them 24-hour running because of their strong frequencies and it is possible using simple ideas of deception of equipment to attract the electronic waves devices similar to that used by the Yugoslav army when they used the microwave (oven) in attracting and confusing the Nato missiles fitted with electromagnetic searching devices.

7. Using general confusion methods and not to use permanent headquarters.

8. Discovering the presence of a drone through well-placed reconnaissance networks and to warn all the formations to halt any movement in the area.

9. To hide from being directly or indirectly spotted, especially at night.

10. To hide under thick trees because they are the best cover against the planes.

11. To stay in places unlit by the sun such as the shadows of the buildings or the trees.

12. Maintain complete silence of all wireless contacts.

13. Disembark of vehicles and keep away from them especially when being chased or during combat.

14. To deceive the drone by entering places of multiple entrances and exits.

15. Using underground shelters because the missiles fired by these planes are usually of the fragmented anti-personnel and not anti-buildings type.

16. To avoid gathering in open areas and in urgent cases, use building of multiple doors or exits.

17. Forming anti-spies groups to look for spies and agents.

18. Formation of fake gatherings such as using dolls and statutes to be placed outside false ditches to mislead the enemy.

19. When discovering that a drone is after a car, leave the car immediately and everyone should go in different direction because the planes are unable to get after everyone.

20. Using natural barricades like forests and caves when there is an urgent need for training or gathering.

21. In frequently targeted areas, use smoke as cover by burning tires.

22. As for the leaders or those sought after, they should not use communications equipment because the enemy usually keeps a voice tag through which they can identify the speaking person and then locate him.

  1. For large drones like the predator this is a list however for the small hand size one the law enforcement community has shown and the much smaller ones the spook community hasn’t shown these methods are going to be marginal. There use is not what I worry about but the misuse of them we are mainly looking at. I expect that corporations are or will be soon using them as spying devices as well and that private ownership will become more prevalent as well.

  2. You can find skygrabber software on a torrent. Then use an old satellite dish attached to the card in your computer. The goal being to see the video feed the done is broadcasting. Supposedly they weren’t using encryption before.
