[liberationtech] Are analogue technologies making a comeback for activists?

Hello everyone,

I'm working on a story about "analogue activism," basically cases of when 
activists, fearing government surveillance, are choosing to leave their 
phones behind, stay offline, or communicate by handwritten notes (for 

I have a number of cases already, in particular in Egypt.

Going further, I'd also be interested in cases where activists, after 
evaluating the risks, are deciding to communicate using older analogue 
technologies like CB radio, or even Morse code (perhaps that one's a 
stretch), to evade government surveillance. 

Or any other analogue technologies making a comeback?

I would love to hear from the folks here about any such cases, on list or 
off list. 

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Thanks, as ever,
