If people want to make sure Echelon (if it indeed exists) gets your
e-mail, go to the web sites for various goverment and military sites.
Gather e-mail addresses given on those pages, like web masters, public
relations, admin, etc, and just send them a message with the words in
them. Spamming your friends might be seen by Echelon, but really does what
pj said, and just clogs up their resources. Make your mail count and send
it to systems, or via systems, that might have Echelon involved with them.

Even better, try and find a military or government server that allows the
test chars to be sent in e-mail addresses. Example, say you want to send
an e-mail to me via some government site

Government site:
My e-mail:

To bounce it to me, via their system insert % like so

The mail server at, if it supports it (sendmail does by
default) it will look for a user on their system named 'bronc' and once it
sees it doesn't have one, bounce it to

This way you can mess with Echelon and still do your normal day to day

PS. Want to make someones day crappy? PGP a message and bounce it off
their box. If they run a firewall or try and see what the message said,
they get crap. Hehehe

Good luck on JED.
