The basic concept of a personal wireless telephone is VERY old. As I noted earlier,
the idea started percolating in 1910, immediately after voice communication by radio was practical.
Just after WW2, amid the burst of open-source government creativity
that was soon halted by Truman's globalist tyranny,
a specific proposal was made by FCC. This specific proposal
sounds remarkably familiar....
Bringing out a couple of sentences:
...the walkie-talkie will contact a physician from a central exchange while he is en route by automobile to a patient's home; the farmer's wife who formerly summoned her husband to the noon-day meal with a clanging dinner bell will call him on 460 megacycles; hunters exploring the far reaches of forests or swamps in search of wild game and fish will be in contact by radio with a central hunting and fishing lodge; department stores, dairies, laundries and similar business concerns will communicate directly with their delivery trucks en route....
Most of these specific activities are either obsolete or illegal now, but you get the idea.
Cellphones as developed in the '80s began with a different essential concept but ended up matching this description.
This 1945 proposal was INTRINSICALLY LOCAL, naturally decentral, strictly BASE TO REMOTE, with each base communicating on low power to its OWN remotes. The central office or house or lodge would use regular phone lines for communicating outside the family or business.
Modern cellphone activity is ALMOST ENTIRELY BASE TO REMOTE, which is why these little scenarios sound so familiar. I don't have stats, but I'd guess 90% of cellphone activity is base-to-remote. Parents tracking kids, businesses tracking deliveries, gamers communicating with Game Central or whatever it is. Very small hub-spoke patterns with at most a few hundred spokes.
The post-1980 implementation DID NOT START with base to remote; it developed from the phone company's long-distance operations, so it's INTRINSICALLY GLOBAL. Modern cellphones are ALWAYS IN CONTACT with the nationwide network, which means the nationwide network can always find you and monitor you.
Under the 1945 system global monitoring and global hacking would have been hugely expensive and impractical. Under the existing system global monitoring and global hacking are the core and base of the business.
